Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is a prescription medicine that comes in tablet form. Lipitor is a statin, which is a type of cholesterol lowering medicine. Statins work by blocking an enzyme in the liver that makes cholesterol. This reduces overall cholesterol levels in the body.

Doctors prescribe Lipitor for patients with high cholesterol who are at risk of getting heart disease, which could lead to high blood pressure, heart attack and/or stroke. It is a commonly prescribed drug for reducing cholesterol. Over 20 million patients have been prescribed Lipitor. Lipitor® is manufactured by Pfizer, Inc.
