Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Atorvastatin itself does not cause any weight loss.
  • It is an anti lipid drug which lowers your lipids in blood that means, it will decrease chances of heart blockage.
  • And you will not loose any weight because of atorvastatin itself.
  • There can be minor side effects with Atorvastatin such as constipation, fatigue, etc.
