Red Wine, Aspirin, and Omega 3 and 9 fatty acids Answered by Tanja Eustice 3 months ago.
An asprin tablet a day or a glass of wine a day (alcohol is a drug) have both been shown to work. Any more and then you are looking at cancer, kidney problems or liver problems in the future. I would stay away from anything new or unheard of before because the long term tests aren't there. If long term problems might not be a problem (you will likely die before they come into effect) then maybe something newer yet tested might be better. Atorvastatin Calcium is used to prevent blood clots from cholesterol, which can cause heart disease and stroke, by reducing the amount of cholesterol. Wine and asprin are both blood thinners while wine also relaxes the heart. Answered by Ettie Mcelhaney 3 months ago.

I am having trouble with high blood calcium. The only thing that I can attribute this to is that I take atorvastatin calcium each day. Is that the possible cause for the high calcium levels? I have been taking Lipitor or atorvastatin since 1998. Answered by Georgette Boody 3 months ago.

Why two different directions for atorvastatin calcium.One says no grapefruit, the other no alcohol?
Asked by Jewell Doria 3 months ago.
Probably because both of those things can cause violent side affects when mixed with that medication. Ask your pharmacist to be sure. Answered by Matt Reider 3 months ago.
I know you definitely cannot have grapefruit. I drink moderately (wine and beer occasionally) and my cardiologist said that was fine. The issue is that the drug affects your liver and if you drink a lot of alcohol it processes through your liver and it makes it work a lot harder than it needs to.... Answered by Enedina Nelisse 3 months ago.
I have read that both alcohol and grapefruit are to be avoided while taking that madication. Answered by Deena Virtue 3 months ago.
statins and grapefruit don't mix...enzymes reduce effectiveness statins and alchohol don't mix...alchohol can intesify their effect and result in wooziness and a signiificant drop in blood pressure so your days of Salty Dogs or Greyhounds are over, dear...

How lipitor acts in the body?What is the molecular & physiological mechanism by which it lowers cholesterol?
Asked by Hester Linstrom 3 months ago.
LIPITOR (atorvastatin calcium) is a synthetic lipid-lowering agent. Atorvastatin is an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate, an early and rate-limiting step in cholesterol biosynthesis. Answered by Otto Zukerman 3 months ago.
If Pravachol or Lipitor aren't working....?
He has been on these for YEARS!!! I wasn't worried too much about the 214 as much as the 445 and 11 numbers-they seem very lopsided. Thanks for your answer.
Asked by Dominique Mcglawn 3 months ago.
will natural remedies have any effect of cholesterol? My Husband has been on both and his readings are sky high. 445 HDL and 11 LDL-- total 214. He works out, eats pretty well, no fast food, not over weight and am trying to figure out what to get naturally for him until we see the doctor again. I did buy flaxseed oil and garlic to start and am going to get the other things I have seen that are supposed to lower the numbers but if the prescriptions don't work is ANYTHING going to work? Answered by Petronila Nagura 3 months ago.
Pravachol (pravastatin sodium) and Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) are very effective medications, but remember they're just pills, don't wait a miracle. He has to use them regularly for a couple of months. They will decrease and regulate the blood lipid levels. If they don't, talk to your doctor there are some similar mediacations like them, he/she may change them. 214mg/dl cholesterol is not a very high level, in fact according to some laboratories normal values are 120-240mg/dl. Just wait and don't panic. Those pills will help. Of course a healthy diet is important, but don't use some plants instead of medications, just keep your doctor's advices; and don't bore him too much. Answered by Chun Fiorita 3 months ago.

Atorvastatin is indicated as an adjunct to diet for the treatment of dyslipidaemia, specifically hypercholesterolaemia. It has also been used in the treatment of combined hyperlipidemia.
