Lipitor (atorvastatin) Prescribed Online
What is Lipitor?
Lipitor (atorvastatin) is a type of statin and is available on prescription. Statins are used to treat patients with high cholesterol or who are at risk of cardiovascular illness, heart attack and stroke. Statins decrease the amount of cholesterol produced in the liver by blocking an enzyme that is the cause of its production.

HDL levels protect the arteries from narrowing and hardening, a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is caused by amounts of LDL becoming clogged in the artery, increasing the risk of developing heart disease.
