    What is Lipitor used for?

    Lipitor is prescribed to help lower high cholesterol levels. It can also assist in reducing the risk of having a stroke or heart attack in people who have high blood pressure and CHD (coronary heart disease). Examples of risk factors for CHD include a history of stroke, small blood vessel disease, and diabetes. Lipitor is part of the drug class called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors and works by reducing the amount of cholesterol produced by the liver.
