Do online pharmacies provide lipitor discounts?

See the DrugPatentWatch profile for lipitor

Yes, online pharmacies do provide discounts on Lipitor, a popular cholesterol-lowering medication. Many reputable international online pharmacies offer significant savings on brand-name and generic Lipitor (atorvastatin) [1]. These discounts can be especially beneficial for those without insurance coverage or those with high copayments.

When searching for online pharmacies, it is crucial to choose verified and licensed platforms to ensure safety and effectiveness [2]. Some trustworthy online pharmacies, such as those accredited by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA) or the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), offer Lipitor at lower prices than traditional brick-and-mortar pharmacies [3][4].

Additionally, Lipitor's patent expired in 2011, leading to the availability of generic atorvastatin [5]. This has contributed to the price reduction of the medication, as generic drugs are typically less expensive than their brand-name counterparts [6].

It is important to note that while online pharmacies can offer substantial discounts, patients should always consult their healthcare provider before starting or changing any medication [7].
