Can lipitor be taken with a low fat diet?



Lipitor is a medication that is used to lower cholesterol levels in the body. According to the drug label provided by Pfizer [3], it can be taken with or without food, and it is not necessary to take it with a low-fat diet. However, a low-fat diet is recommended for patients taking Lipitor as part of a cholesterol-lowering treatment plan [2]. This is because a low-fat diet can help reduce the amount of cholesterol in the body, which can further improve the effectiveness of Lipitor. It is important to note that patients should always follow the instructions provided by their healthcare provider regarding the use of Lipitor and any dietary restrictions that may be recommended [2].
