Atorvastatin Calcium 40 mg Tablet – Lowvas-40 belongs to the statin medication class, which is used to treat high cholesterol levels in the body. It helps to reduce blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol, and increase levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or good cholesterol. Dyslipidaemia is the medical term for the accumulation of dangerous lipid (fat) levels in the blood. In this condition, levels of triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol) are always high (HDL or good cholesterol).
It contains the medication “Atorvastatin,” which delays the body’s production of cholesterol, so lowering the amount of cholesterol that can accumulate on artery walls and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body. Atorvastatin inhibits the production of cholesterol that might build up in the arteries supplying the heart, brain, and other organs with blood. Lowering cholesterol levels helps prevent future cardiac diseases like heart attacks and strokes. Atorvastatin may also be prescribed to people with a family history of high cholesterol about coronary heart disease, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Atorvastatin is used in combination with a healthy diet to help lower “bad” cholesterol and fats (such as LDL and triglycerides) while increasing “good” cholesterol (HDL). It is a member of the class of medications known as “statins.” It functions by reducing the quantity of cholesterol the liver produces. Raising “good” cholesterol while lowering “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides reduces the risk of heart disease and aids in the prevention of strokes and heart attacks. Exercise, weight loss if overweight, and quitting smoking are some lifestyle changes that may help this drug work better, in addition to eating a healthy diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet).
The skeletal muscle tissue breakdown brought on by the atorvastatin calcium 40 mg pill may result in kidney failure. This condition typically affects the elderly, people with kidney disease, and people with hypothyroidism that is not under control (underactive thyroid). Children under the age of ten should not be prescribed it.
If you have ever had an allergic reaction to atorvastatin, have liver or kidney problems (jaundice, liver cirrhosis), are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, nursing a child, have severe lung disease, have previously experienced a heart attack or stroke brought on by brain bleeding, have hypothyroidism, consume more than two drinks daily, have fibromyalgia, or have damaged muscle tissue, you should speak with a doctor before taking atorvastatin (rhabdomyolysis).
As directed by your doctor, take one atorvastatin calcium 40 mg tablet with or after food. Consume the tablet fully with a glass of water. Never break it or chew on it. Keep the medication away from wet and sunlight. Make sure the medicine is out of children’s reach because the wrong dosage could be hazardous.
