1. What Sortis is and what it is used for

Sortis belongs to a group of medicines known as statins, which are lipid (fat) regulating medicines.
Sortis is used to lower lipids known as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood when a low fat diet and life style changes on their own have failed. If you are at an increased risk of heart disease, Sortis 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.

2. What you need to know before you take Sortis

Do not take Sortis:

-   if you are allergic to atorvastatin or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6)
-   if you have or have ever had a disease which affects the liver
-   if you have had any unexplained abnormal blood tests for liver    function
-   if you are a woman able to have children and not using    reliable    contraception
-   if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant
-   if you are breast-feeding
Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse before taking Sortis:
-   if you have severe respiratory failure
-   if you are taking or have taken in the last 7 days a medicine called fusidic acid, (a medicine for bacterial infection) orally or by injection. The combination of fusidic acid and Sortis can lead to serious muscle problems (rhabdomyolysis)
-   if you have had a previous stroke with bleeding into the brain, or have small pockets of fluid in the brain from previous strokes
-   if you have kidney problems
-   if you have an under-active thyroid gland (hypothyroidism)
-   if you have had repeated or unexplained muscle aches    or pains, a personal history or family
history of muscle problems
-   if you have had previous muscular problems during treatment with other lipid-lowering medicines (e.g. other ‘-statin’ or ‘-fibrate’ medicines)
-   if you regularly drink a large amount of alcohol
-   if you have a history of liver disease
-   if you are older than 70 years
If any of these apply to you, your doctor will need to carry out a blood test before and possibly during your Sortis treatment to predict your risk of muscle related side effects. The risk of muscle related side effects e.g. rhabdomyolysis is known to increase when certain medicines are taken at the same time (see section 2 “Other medicines and Sortis”).
Also tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have a muscle weakness that is constant. Additional tests and medicines may be needed to diagnose and treat this.
While you are on this medicine your doctor will monitor you closely if you have diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes. You are likely to be at risk of developing diabetes if you have high levels of sugars and fats in your blood, are overweight and have high blood pressure.

Other medicines and Sortis

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines. There are some medicines that may change the effect of Sortis or their effect may be changed by Sortis. This type of interaction could make one or both of the medicines less effective. Alternatively it could increase the risk or severity of side-effects, including the important muscle wasting condition known as rhabdomyolysis described in section 4:
-   Medicines used to alter the way your immune system works, e.g. ciclosporin
-   Certain antibiotics or antifungal medicines, e.g. erythromycin, clarithromycin, telithromycin, ketoconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole, fluconazole, posaconazole, rifampin, fusidic acid
-   Other medicines to regulate lipid levels, e.g. gemfibrozil, other fibrates, colestipol
-   Some calcium channel blockers used for angina or high blood pressure, e.g. amlodipine, diltiazem,; medicines to regulate your heart rhythm e.g. digoxin, verapamil, amiodarone
-   Medicines used in the treatment of HIV e.g. ritonavir, lopinavir, atazanavir, indinavir, darunavir, the combination of tipranavir/ritonavir etc.
-   Some medicines used in the treatment of hepatitis C e.g. telaprevir
-   Other medicines known to interact with Sortis include ezetimibe (which lowers cholesterol), warfarin (which reduces blood clotting), oral contraceptives, stiripentol (an anti-convulsant for epilepsy), cimetidine (used for heartburn and peptic ulcers), phenazone (a painkiller), colchicine (used to treat gout), antacids (indigestion products containing aluminium or magnesium) and boceprevir (used to treat liver disease such as hepatitis C)
-   Medicines obtained without a prescription: St John’s Wort
-   If you need to take oral fusidic acid to treat a bacterial infection you will need to temporarily stop using this medicine. Your doctor will tell you when it is safe to restart Sortis. Taking Sortis with fusidic acid may rarely lead to muscle weakness, tenderness or pain (rhabdomyolysis). See more information regarding rhabdomyolysis in section 4.
