You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much atorvastatin. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?
