Brief Answer:
There are no unlisted uses for atorvastatin!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

As of now, there are no recognized unlisted uses for atorvastatin. This drug is only used to treat high cholesterol in the prevention and management of heart diseases. In practice, this is never prescribed for any other purposes than for lipid disorders.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
