Can lipitor be used with natural remedies?



Lipitor is a brand name for atorvastatin, which is a prescription medication used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood [1]. According to a report by CardioSmart, some natural remedies may help lower cholesterol levels in addition to prescription medications like Lipitor. However, it is essential to consult a healthcare provider before taking any natural remedies as they may interact with Lipitor or other medications [2]. The NHS advises that it is safe to take atorvastatin with most herbal remedies, but some herbal supplements like St John's Wort may interact with atorvastatin and reduce its effectiveness [3]. Therefore, it is crucial to inform the healthcare provider about any natural remedies being taken alongside Lipitor to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
