View Full Version : dosage of Atorvastatin

09-05-2013, 01:15 PM
I have recently been prescribed 10mg Atorvastatin to try to get rid of some plaque in my leg and carotid arteries. My cholesterol readings have always been within normal ranges, and I have inherited high HDL. I take blood pressure pills which control my hypertension plus Evista for my Osteoporosis.
I have been splitting the pills, which means I am taking 5 mg. at the moment.
The first two days I had a slight headache when I woke up, so I hesitate to take the 10 mg. I was just wondering if anyone else has done this. I am really wary of taking any statin and want to start out slowly. Thanks. Mabent

What exactly are your numbers, your lipid profile - HDL/LDL/Triglycerides? High HDL is good!
