Is Lipitor Medication An Effective Medication?
I would recommend as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that Lipitor is a drug indicated in dyslipidemia, which is a known cardio-vascular risk factor.
I would recommend taking it only if you have dyslipidemia, which means high cholesterol levels.
To be more specific, I would recommend taking lipitor in case of a ratio Total cholesterol/HDL above 4.5.
Otherwise, it is not necessary taking it.
I would not recommend taking Lipitor in case of heart failure.
Some tips to reduce your cholesterol levels in a natural way, without the need of Lipitor would be:
- use Mediterranean diet
- take plenty of food rich in omega 3 fatty acids (walnuts, fish oil, fish, etc.)
- reduce saturated fat and sweats in your diet
- perform a lot of physical activity.
