Does lipitor lower protein as well as cholesterol?



Based on the information available, Lipitor (atorvastatin) is primarily used for lowering cholesterol levels, not protein. It is a type of drug known as a statin, which reduces the amount of cholesterol your body produces. By lowering cholesterol levels, Lipitor helps prevent heart attacks and stroke [1].

The U.S. National Library of Medicine's MedlinePlus states that "Lipitor is used together with a proper diet to help lower cholesterol and fats (triglycerides) in the blood" [2]. There is no mention of Lipitor's effect on protein levels.

DrugPatentWatch.com, a comprehensive database of pharmaceutical patents, does not provide information on the effects of Lipitor on protein levels [3].

In conclusion, while Lipitor is effective in lowering cholesterol levels, there is no evidence to suggest that it has an impact on protein levels.

Follow-up:   Does Lipitor decrease both cholesterol and protein levels? How does Lipitor affect cholesterol and protein specifically? Is protein level reduction a side effect of Lipitor's cholesterol-lowering?
