Lipitor is used with diet changes (restriction of cholesterol and fat intake) to reduce the amount of cholesterol and certain fatty substances in your blood. Accumulation of cholesterol and fats along the walls of your arteries (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow and, therefore, the oxygen supply to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Lowering your blood level of cholesterol and fats may help to prevent heart disease, angina (Chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks.
Lipitor comes as a tablet to take it orally. It is usually taken once a day with or without food. To help you remember to take Lipitor, take it around the same time every day. Your doctor may start you on a low dose of Lipitor and gradually increase your dose.

Q. What is the purpose of an online consultation?
A: Online consultations are a unique and creative way to use Internet technology to connect patients to medical doctors. Using this ordering format, the patient can bypass having a traditional medical examination with a physician, and instead will fill out a questionnaire online, which is then dispatched to a medical doctor using our safe, secure ordering system. An online consultation is not a substitute for a traditional medical examination; it simply serves as a means for patients to access treatment for a number of medical conditions that do not require a full, in-person medical examination.
