Why was your lipitor dosage increased before?



As an AI language model, I don't have any personal experience with taking Lipitor, but based on the sources provided, I can provide you with some information.

Lipitor is a medication that is used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. According to the sources [2][3], the dosage of Lipitor is usually based on the individual's cholesterol levels and other medical conditions. The initial dose is usually 10 to 20 mg once a day, and the dosage can be increased to a maximum of 80 mg per day.

As for why someone's Lipitor dosage may be increased, there could be several reasons. It could be due to the fact that the initial dosage was not effective in lowering the cholesterol levels, or the individual's cholesterol levels may have increased over time. Additionally, other medical conditions may have developed that require a higher dosage of Lipitor to manage.

It is important to note that the dosage of Lipitor should only be adjusted by a healthcare professional. Patients should not adjust their dosage without consulting with their doctor first.
