Atorvastatin 80 mg is an oral medication that doctors prescribe to treat high blood cholesterol. Lowering high cholesterol helps prevents some cardiovascular conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, and renal impairment. Atorvastatin, the active ingredient is also effective in treating patients who are at high risk of developing heart disease. Control of high cholesterol should be a part of cardiovascular risk management including, smoking cessation, diabetes management, lipid control regular exercise, and limited sodium intake. If you continue to have high cholesterol levels, your heart may not function properly. This may cause severe damage to the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys.

Atorvastatin can cause a drop in blood pressure in some people those suffering from aortic stenosis. Symptoms of low blood pressure include nausea, tiredness, and feeling faint. After the dose adjustment done by your doctor, you may experience worsening of symptoms of chest pain and increase the risk of a heart attack in people with severe obstructive coronary disease. Your doctor should be aware of your liver condition, if you are suffering from liver problems, then your doctor needs to closely monitor your and increase the dose of Amlodipine slowly to avoid worsening of symptoms. A woman receiving Amlodipine should inform her doctor about her pregnancy status. Doctors recommend that breastfeeding women should not take this drug without consultation. Due to lack of evidence, doctors still do not know whether it is safe to prescribe Amlodipine to children below the age of six years.

According to the clinical trials to evaluate the safety of Amlodipine in hypertensive patients or those suffering from angina. These studies found that the medicine caused problems in 80 mg dosage per daily. However, common side effects include flushing, irregular heartbeat, dizziness, and edema. Some less common side effects with the use of statin include nausea, fatigue, abdominal pain, a hemicrania, or drowsiness.

The dosage for the cholesterol-lowering drug depends on the person’s condition and how well the patients respond to the treatment. The doctor will also want your details of medical history when recommending a dosage. Doctors adjust a person’s dosage as per blood cholesterol goals and it is important to wait for 1 to 2 weeks between changes. For adults, the usual initial dose of Atorvastatin is 80 mg once daily. In elderly patients or patients with hepatic insufficiency should exercise caution as these patients are more likely to get side effects associated with Amlodipine. For elderly or those with liver problems, maybe a lower dose is sufficient to cut down the amount of cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
