How To Withdraw From Atorvastatin?

I eat no dairy or meat and I have healthy cholesterol levels along with good HDL and LDL levels. At what point can I consider reducing some of this medication that I take to lower my cholesterol? It hasn’t changed, although I reduced my dietary cholesterol since last May. I take 10 mg of Atorvastatin Dailey. Also take medication for A-fib and high blood pressure. Cholesterol:173, Triglyceride: 146, HDL: 64, LDL:80, Chol/HDL:2.7
