You : You should be perfectly fine. Lipitor (atorvastatin) is dosed anywhere from 10mg-80mg, so a one time 40mg tab should not cause any harm. Consider putting any meds you do not currently take in a different location then the ones you take at present. This should help prevent a mix up in the future. Take care.

No: Max dose of Lipitor (atorvastatin) is up to 80 mg. Be extra careful next time
