What Is This Drug Designed To Do In Order To Help Your Health Problem To Improve?
Atorlip is a medication that’s used in order to decrease the amount of cholesterol as well as other bad fats such as triglycerides inside the blood. When used correctly it can also lower a person’s risk of heart disease that can be brought on by high cholesterol. Atorlip lowers the amount of total cholesterol and it lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) that can lead to arteries becoming hardened and blocked as a result. It increases the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) that is able to assist in unblocking arteries that are hardened.
Atorlip works best when it’s used alongside a low fat diet to treat people who are at risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) or people who have high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) whether it’s inherited or because of lifestyle (a diet high in fat or not exercising enough). These would be people who have had trouble responding well to a low fat diet and changes to lifestyle alone.
What are some of the most common doses of this medication that you would probably get or that it comes in?
Atorlip comes in many different dosages, but the most common are 10mg, 20mg and 40mg. You’ll usually get these in quantities of 30. The dosage you get is going to be determined by how serious a doctor believes your condition is. If the drug isn’t working for you as well as they think it should be after a certain period of use, then you might be given a higher dosage. In the meantime you will not want to take more or less of the drug than told.
What are some things you’ll need to stay away from while using this medication that would put you at extra risk for side effects?
If you’re a person who drinks large amounts of alcohol, then you’re going to put yourself at risk for liver problems if you take Atorlip. You would want to either lower your consumption of these drinks or find a way to stop altogether, which is easier said than done. People who consume large amounts of grapefruit juice are also at risk of serious side effects, because grapefruit and grapefruit juice interacts badly with this drug. It increases the level of Atorlip in the blood.
