Potent new lipid-lowering drug, Lipitor (atorvastatin)

    You'll see more emphasis on lowering cholesterol...and a potent new lipid-lowering drug, Lipitor (atorvastatin). This new drug will be out in the next couple of months from Parke-Davis.

    Lipitor lowers LDL significantly more than simvastatin (Zocor)...pravastatin (Pravachol)...and the other "statins."

    That's how it got its nickname, "turbostatin." It lowers LDL up to 60%...compared to 25% to 40% for the others.
