Brief answer....FIBATOR is an anti cholesterol medicine and not a weight reduction medicine
Detailed answer....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern regarding reduction of weight,however the medicine you mentioned,FIBATOR ( ATORVASTATIN ) ,is not a weight reduction medicine and is used in people having high blood cholesterol levels for reduction of cholesterol.
If the name of the medicine written by you is correct,then I beg to say that your doctor is wrong,however clarify this with him and then you can revert back to me.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
