The manufacturer of atorvastatin (Lipitor®) has written to doctors informing them that smaller round tablets will replace the existing oval shaped tablets across the range of strengths for atorvastatin.
A change in the manufacturing process has allowed the tablets to be made smaller. There will also be some changes to the tablet markings and the product packaging.
Action: Clinicians should be aware of the change and patients can be reassured that the active ingredient is unchanged.
