C lipitor Is for ur cholesterol... i'll advice u tk lipitor after consulting with doctor... dnt tk it or buy it without a valid prescription and ur doctor will b the best person to tell u whn nt to take or to guide you and makin u switch to another medication...
the generic to the lipitor is already available..<atorvastatin>..but the generic dosen't work as good as the brand one... i'll suggest u to tk the brand one .. if possible try to lower down the strength of the medication after consulting with ur doctor..

Lipitor is off patent, available as the generic name atrovastatin, generally generics are far cheaper to buy rather than the branded medicines, but please consult a doctor before you take this medicine.
