Can i take lipitor with a full stomach?



Lipitor is a medication that is used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. It contains atorvastatin, which works by blocking an enzyme that the body uses to make cholesterol. According to the NHS [2], Lipitor should be taken once a day, preferably at the same time each day, with or without food. The medication can be taken with or without a meal, but it is recommended to take it at the same time each day to help remember when to take it. It is also important to follow the instructions of the doctor or pharmacist when taking this medication.

The Drug Patent Watch [1] website provides information about the patent status of Lipitor. It does not provide information about how to take the medication. However, Drugs.com [3] states that Lipitor can be taken with or without food. Taking it with food may help reduce stomach upset that can occur with the medication. It is important to avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking Lipitor, as this can increase the risk of side effects.

In conclusion, based on the provided sources, Lipitor can be taken with or without food. However, it is recommended to take it at the same time each day to help remember when to take it. It is also important to avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking Lipitor, as this can increase the risk of side effects.
