Lipitor is a brand name of a drug containing atorvastatin. Marketed by Pfizer, Lipitor is part of a class of drugs known as “statins” that are the most prescribed class of drugs in the world. Statins are prescribed to lower cholesterol, stabilize the formation of plaque and prevent strokes and heart attacks.
Unfortunately, Lipitor may be harmful as well. In fact, studies have linked Lipitor to cognitive side effects, an increased risk of muscle injury when taken in conjunction with certain other medications, and an increased risk of diabetes.
