Can i take lipitor and pain relievers before bedtime?



Lipitor, also known as atorvastatin, is a medication used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. It is generally safe to take Lipitor before bedtime, as it is often prescribed to be taken once a day at any time of the day [3]. However, it is important to note that certain pain relievers can interact with Lipitor and cause adverse effects. For example, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and aspirin can increase the risk of muscle damage when taken with statins like Lipitor [2]. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare provider before taking any pain relievers while on Lipitor to ensure that there are no potential interactions or adverse effects [1].
