AtorvastatinAbout AtorvastatinHMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitor, statins, Antilipemic agent.Mechanism of Action of AtorvastatinIt is a more potent statin which competitively inhibits the conversion of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl glutaryl coenzyme A (HMG CoA) to mevalonate. The drug exerts it`s action by specific inhibition of enzyme; 3-hydroxy-3-methyl glutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMG CoA reductase) and reduces cholesterol synthesis up to 50% at therapeutic doses. This results in compensatory increase in low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor expression in liver which ultimately leads to increased receptor mediated uptake and catabolism of intermediate density lipoprotein(IDL) and low density lipoprotein (LDL). It causes dose dependent lowering of LDL cholesterol and reduces hepatic synthesis of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) and lowers plasma triglyceride levels. It also increases high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels. It also exerts antioxidant property.Pharmacokinets of AtorvastatinAbsorption: Readily absorbed orally, Distribution: Widely distributed in a highly protein bound form, Metabolism: Metabolized in liver in to active metabolite, Excretion: Excreted mainly through bile.Onset of Action for AtorvastatinN/ADuration of Action for AtorvastatinN/AHalf Life of Atorvastatin18 to 24 hoursSide Effects of Atorvastatin1.Headache
