I received a supply of atorvastatin 80 mg pills from the Indian pharmaceutical company Burgeon. They are in foil packs. They are much smaller than the usual Lipitor 80 pills. Is this ok?
Can atorvastatin 80 mg pills be much smaller than equivalent Lipitor 80s and still be OK?
Added 16 Nov 2009:
The concern is that Lipitor is packaged with inert ingredients that help time-release the active drug. If these are not present, will the drug be as effective?
