How Gissistat Products work

Patient Concerns about Gissistat Products

Frequently asked questions about Gissistat Products

Frequently asked questions about Atorvastatin

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 “bad” 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 disease and stroke. HDL cholesterol is called “good” cholesterol as it prevents the bad cholesterol from building up in the blood vessels. High levels of triglycerides are also harmful to you.
Q. Can Gissistat 10mg Capsule cause muscle problems or muscle injury?
Yes, taking Gissistat 10mg Capsule can cause muscle problems or muscle injury. This is because of the reduced oxygen supply to the muscle cells which leads to fatigue, muscle pain, tenderness, or muscle weakness. The soreness may be significant enough to interfere with your daily activities. Do not take it lightly and consult your doctor to know about ways to prevent this and to avoid making it worse.
Q. Is Gissistat 10mg Capsule used for lowering cholesterol?
Gissistat 10mg Capsule belongs to a group of medicines known as statins, which lowers the level of lipids or fats. Gissistat 10mg Capsule is used to lower lipids known as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood when a low-fat diet and lifestyle changes fail to lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.

You should maintain a standard cholesterol-lowering diet during treatment.

Q. Will taking Gissistat 10mg Capsule lead to an increase in my risk of diabetes?

Q. Can I take alcohol with Gissistat 10mg Capsule?
