Product Ingridients:
  • Atorvastatin
Therapeutic actions:

Atoris tablets contain the active ingredient atorvastatin, which is a type of medicine called a statin. It works by decreasing the production of cholesterol by the liver. Atorvastatin calcium decreases the production of LDL(bad) cholesterol by blocking the action of the enzyme in the liver (called HMG-CoA reductase) that is responsible for its production. This decreases the amount of cholesterol in the liver cells, which causes them to take up LDL(bad) cholesterol from the blood. The decreased cholesterol production and increased removal of LDL(bad) cholesterol from the blood ultimately results in lowered blood cholesterol levels.


Atorvastatin is used to reduce the amounts of LDL (bad) cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B in your blood. Atoris is also used to increase the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in your blood. These actions are important to reduce the risk of hardening of the arteries, which can lead to stroke ,heart attacks, and peripheral vascular disease.
