Standard Indications

Specific Indications

Atorvastatin is indicated as an adjunct to diet for the treatment of patients with hypercholesterolaemia. Prior to initiating therapy with atorvastatin,

secondary causes of hypercholesterolaemia (e.g. poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, nephrotic syndrome, dysproteinaemias, obstructive

liver disease, other drug therapy, and alcoholism) should be identified and treated. ,Atorvastatin is indicated in hypertensive patients with multiple risk

factors for coronary heart disease (CHD) which may include diabetes, history of stroke or other cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease or

existing asymptomatic CHD (see Clinical Trials, Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease) to reduce the risk of non-fatal myocardial infarction and non-fatal

stroke.,These effects do not replace the need to independently control known causes of cardiovascular mortality and morbidity such as hypertension,

diabetes and smoking.
