Every 36 seconds, someone in the United States dies of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular diseases cause about 659,000 deaths per year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death globally taking about 17+ million lives every year. The need to combat these diseases and their causes have been a top priority for many in the healthcare industry.
Today, AgelessRx is thrilled to announce the addition of Atorvastatin to its range of medications and products that are helping to improve the quality of people around the world. Atorvastatin is a generic form of Lipitor that can help reduce total cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other health problems. The drug is a member of a class of prescription medications called ‘statins’ that work to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the liver and help remove cholesterol already in the blood. As a result, Atorvastatin helps in lowering overall cholesterol levels.
By taking one tablet of Atorvastatin daily (10mg/day, or as prescribed), consumers will improve the level of ‘good’ cholesterol in their bodies, reduce the risk of plaque build-up, heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases. Like other ‘statins,’ Atorvastatin will require approximately 4-6 weeks to help cholesterol levels stabilize. A consumer will need to complete a blood test within the first 3-6 months of treatment to check cholesterol levels such as LDL, HDL, Total Cholesterol and Triglycerides to identify measurable improvements.
Though effective in dealing with cholesterol and heart issues, Atorvastatin may cause some side effects in some patients. Side effects are common in every drug, and it is important to understand those from a particular drug to know when the medication is taking effect. Some of the side effects of Atorvastatin include muscle weakness, cold-like symptoms, nausea, headache, constipation, and sore throat.
There are other important safety precautions that must be observed to enhance the effectiveness of Atorvastatin. Consumers must not take the drug when:
- They are on another statin, niacin-laropiprant, verapamil, beta-blockers, diltiazem or diuretics
- They are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed within the next six months.
- They are allergic to it or any of its ingredients.
Taking grapefruit with Atorvastatin makes the drug ineffective. Also, most medical professionals highly recommend that Atorvastatin is supplemented with 100mg/day of CoQ10. It is important to consult with a medical professional prior to use if one is already taking other medications for hypertension, diabetes, or thyroid conditions.
