Is atorvastatin ( Lipitor) 40 mg monthly evaluation prescrib

I was placed on Liptor 40 mg with refills for last 3 months last doctor visit 2 weeks ago was told to continue and come back for blood tests in December. When I went to get refill this month was told by pharmacy they had to wait for doctor approval to refill. I called doctor office and got refill to last until my next visit. My question is wouldn’t the doctor have told me that there’s a change in how he is prescribing medication to insure that I have enough between appointments. ## This is a followup to my post. Apparently because of the holiday (Veterans), my prescription was not processed until 4 days after I called the doctor's office for refill. He didn't change prescription but made it a 90 day prescription with refills rather than a monthly refill. Again, I wou... ...

Atorvastatin Tablets Ip

to reduce cholesterol level which are the best medicin with less side effect instead of above tablet 5 mg ## There is really no way to say which one would be better for any single person, because everyone can react to a medication differently.

Weaning off of Atorvastatin

I am on 80 mg of Atorvastatin. Can I safely start cutting my doses to 40 for a week or two, then half the 40 for a week or two, then half the 20, then get off without the extreme side effects? ## Hi Terry, Generally, it's best to discuss tapering protocols with your prescribing doctor in order to mitigate possible risk factors (e.g. rebound effects or withdrawal symptoms). However, as a last resort, and because only you know your body and how it responds to Atorvastatin, my opinion is that your current approach certainly seems feasible. Since Atorvastatin is used to treat high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, simply changing your diet (staying away from foods that raise those numbers) should theoretically yield noticeable results in and of itself. Unfortunately no one can accura... ...

Joint pain with atorvastatin

I have always had normal cholesterol but a year ago was diagnosed with a 40 percent blockage of carotid artery. I started taking atorvastatin 20 mg and this past March my new doc raised it to 40 mg. A month ago I started getting joint pain all over. My internist ran blood tests and I was negative for Lyme and RA. However, blood tests showed some indication I have inflammation possibly related to some form of arthritis. I will be seeing a rheumatologist very soon. Could atorvastatin be the cause? ## Hello, Isabel! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. And yes, these statin medications are very well known for causing joint and muscle pain as a side effect. In some cases, it's been so severe that the people had to stop taking the medication. Thus, there's a good chanc... ...

Pantoprazole Sod Dr 40 Mg/reaction

I have been taking this pill (for heart attack recovery) since last fall. I already was being treated for vertigo and it seemed to make the vertigo worse plus made me be in a "fog" most of the time. Do I need to change to another generic for Protonix ? ## Hello, John! How are you? This is not a medication used to treat a heart condition of any type. This is a proton pump inhibitor that helps reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. It can cause some slight dizziness as a side effect, but it really should't worsen vertigo or cause you to seem to be in a fog. Do you take any other medications? ## Thanks for your reply. I take Enteric Aspirin 81 mg, Clopidogrel 75 mg, Atorvastatin 20 mg, and ... ...

Lipitor-break 80mg tablets in half?

Is it ok to break 80 mg tablets in half to acheive 40mg dose? ## Of course it is! You would be far better and cheaper if you were to buy a good generic atorvastatin though, as Lipitor is exceedingly overpriced. 80mg is a HUGE dosage of atorvastatin, and is equivalent in potency to almost 160mg Simvastatin, which many consider the superior statin. Have you recently suffered a stroke or myocardial infarction? ## It is okay to do so, as long as the medication is not time released, and your doctor approves. My cardiologist often prescribes some of my medications in a higher dosage, so I can cut them in half, since it is often cheaper that way. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Atorvastatin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches. Are you on any othe... ...

Rumoquin NF drug interactions

Is this drug safe to take with gabapentin 600 mg? Also what dosage? How often can it be taken? ## Does Rumoquin N.F. interact with Metoprolol 25 mg or Atorvastatin 40 mg ## @Brownie, Rumoquin NF contains a combination of diclofenac, methocarbamol and dexamethasone. Because these are all prescribed drugs, the doctor who is prescribing them to you should be aware of anything else you are taking alongside them. If your doctor didn't give you any dosing advice, I would recommend calling him/her asap. Ironically, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), diclofenac and dexamethasone have a "high interaction potential"; that is to say it is NOT recommended you take them together, which I find odd since they are both included in the s... ...
