Lipitor is a cholesterol-lowering drug. Your doctor may prescribe it along with a special diet if your blood cholesterol or triglyceride level is high enough to put you in danger of heart disease and you have been unable to lower your readings by diet alone.

The drug works by helping to clear harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol out of the blood and by limiting the body's ability to form new LDL cholesterol.

You need to follow a standard cholesterol-lowering diet before starting Lipitor and should continue following it throughout your therapy.
