Lipitor Gets Additional Clout

Lipitor (atorvantatin) was approved by the FDA in 1996 for the treatment of high cholesterol. On March 7, 2007, Lipitor received expanded approval for the treatment non-fatal heart attacks, and fatal and non-fatal strokes.

A five-year study of people with heart disease and high levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) was the basis for the extended approval of the 80 mg dose Lipitor.

Before taking Lipitor, be sure to tell your doctor about allergies to other medications, and whether you are presently taking prescription or non-prescription drugs. Your doctor may also need to know about anti-fungal or other cholesterol lowering medication you are taking. You should also ask your doctor about the use of alcohol beverages while taking lipitor.

You should adhere to a low-fat, high fiber diet when taking Lipitor. Your doctor can also provide nutritional information relative to your individual dietary needs.

    I recently saw an article in Science Daily that red wine protects the heart. Among other things, the article said, “New Haven, Conn. A review article of the latest studies looking at red wine and cardiovascular health shows drinking two to three glasses of red wine daily is good for the heart, according to a Yale School of Medicine researcher in the Journal of American College of Surgeons.” It went on to say that, “The current consensus is that it is not just the alcohol, but something else,” said Bauer Sumpio, M.D., professor and section chief of vascular surgery in the Department of Surgery. “There are probably several mechanisms of protection from a cardiovascular viewpoint.”

    So, if you’re taking other medications or have an allergy that would prevent you from taking Lipitor, hey, maybe red wine is a good alternative.
