Can You Take Lipitor Every Other Day?
Currently I am on 20mg lipitor. Can i take it every other day? I have Ishaemic Heart Disease as well. Is it advisible to reduce the dosing to every other day?
Check with your doctor before you change your dose to every other day. This change may reduce the effect that Lipitor has on your cholesterol.
