Details we will discuss so let’s start the lipitor or atorvastatin first we will see the brief history of attorney statin or a lipitor and at all wise 13 became the world’s best selling medicine of all the time with the sale around 125 billion us dollar in last 14 years and there was a chemist his name was a bruce roth and he was working for warner lambert and

As a chemist in 1982 he synthesized a compound and the name of compound was ci981 and later on it was known as atorvastatin and atorvastatin got it patent in 1986 and it was approved for the medical use in the united states in after 1996 and there is a company whose name is a pfizer they took over the warner lambert and the brand lipitor came to the pfizer and

Brand name of zarater so this was the trade name or brand name and now we will see the indication where doctor used to prescribe the heterostatin so if we see in the broad way that orbistatin is used to reduce the bad cholesterol and fats and the bad cholesterols are ldl and triglycerides where ldl is low density lipids and atorvastatin is used to raise the or

Increase the good cholesterol in the blood and good cholesterol is lhdl high density lipids so basically atomostatin reduce the bad cholesterol and increase the good cholesterol in our blood and the specific indications are dyslipidemia first this is the first one dyslipidemia is a condition where the amount of lipid becomes abnormal and it happens in the blood

And the example of lipids are triglyceride cholesterol and fat phospholipids so this was the first indication dyslipidemia and the next one is a hypercholesterolemia hypercholesterolemia is a condition where the level of cholesterol becomes high in the blood so this is the next one the second one and the third one is homogeneous familial hypercholesterolemia

And homogeneous familial hypercholesterolemia is a genetic disorder basically and it is characterized by high cholesterol levels and the fourth one is combined hyperlipidemia and combined hyperlipidemia is a condition where we see increased level of ldl and triglyceride conditions and the last one is hypertriglyceridemia so this was the indications and next

The narrowing of the blood vessels which may lead to heart attack or stroke so it is also uh that otherwise statin is also indicated in these kind of cardiovascular diseases and the next we will see the mechanism of action how actually the atorvastatin works in our body so in a normal condition of our life our body needs some cholesterol to function properly

And our body gets this cholesterol from our food and by making it in our liver but the dangers starts when this cholesterol level gets too high and atorvastatin acts on enzyme which is responsible for the production of a cholesterol in our body so in this way it is stop the excess cholesterol and how it do so the atorvastatin do this by blocking our body’s

Production of one enzyme and the name of enzyme is hmg coenzyme reductase and with the help of this enzyme our liver makes cholesterol so therefore the level of cholesterol produced in our body get reduced so this is the mechanism of action how atorvastatin works in our body and next we will see what kind of dosage forms are available in the market so at all
