How TG-Tor 80 Tablet works:
Atorno belongs to a group of medicines known as statins, which are lipid (fat) lowering medicines. Atorno is used to lower lipids known as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood when low-fat diet and lifestyle changes fail to lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. If you are at an increased risk of heart disease, Atorno can also be used to reduce such risk even if your cholesterol levels are normal. You should maintain a standard cholesterol-lowering diet during treatment.
Q. Can Atorno be prescribed to children?
Atorno is for adults and children aged 10 years or more whose cholesterol does not come down enough with exercise and low-fat diet. It is not approved for use in patients younger than 10 years old.
Q. Is Atorno a blood thinner?
No, Atorno is not a blood thinner. It is a cholesterol-lowering medicine. It works by slowing down the production of cholesterol in the body to decrease. This further decreases the amount of cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body. By lowering the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides it prevents the chances of stroke and heart attack.
Q. What should I know about high cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a type of fat present in your blood. Total cholesterol is determined by the total amount of LDL and HDL cholesterol in the body. LDL cholesterol is called â€œbadâ€ cholesterol. Bad cholesterol can build up in the wall of your blood vessels and slow or obstruct blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. This can cause heart diseases and stroke. HDL cholesterol is called â€œgoodâ€ cholesterol as it prevents the bad cholesterol from building up in the blood vessels. Triglycerides also are harmful fats found in your blood.
Q. Will taking Atorno increase my risk of diabetes?
If you are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, taking Atorno may increase this risk slightly. This is because Atorno can raise your blood sugar a little. If you already have type 2 diabetes, your doctor may advise monitoring your blood sugar levels more closely for the first few months. Tell your doctor if you find it harder to control your blood sugar.
Q. For how long do I need to take Atorno? Is it safe for long-term use?
You may need to take Atorno life long or for the duration prescribed by your doctor. The benefits will only continue for as long as you take it. If you stop taking Atorno without starting a different treatment, your cholesterol level may rise again. It is considered to be safe and has few side effects if taken as directed by the doctor.
Q. Does Atorno cause weight loss?

Q. What does Atorno do to the body?
Atorno acts on the liver and stops it from making bad cholesterol. It not only lowers the levels of LDL-C (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides but also helps to raise your HDL-C (good cholesterol).

The common side effects of Atorno include nausea, indigestion, constipation, flatulence, diarrhea, headache, and aches and pains in your back and joints. It may also cause nosebleeds, sore throat, and cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, blocked nose or sneezing.
