Rasiklal, it depends. Zivast is reported to contain the active ingredient Atorvastatin (the US brand equivalent is Lipitor). For many, stopping the drug won't be a problem, but should be done with the guidance of their physician. However, a 2005 study by the American Heart Association documented a rebound effect in certain patients who had an ischemic stroke. With that said, it is recommended that you work with your doctor on reducing the dosage or discontinuing the medication since they are most familiar with your full medical history (and any other health conditions which you may experience). I hope this helps! You can read more about this medication at:
