My LDL was 243 today the doctor called and prescribed me Lipitor (atorvastatin) icant afford this can I safely wait and call her tomorrow 5 ft 5 inches 180 lbs.

Not enough info. Don't know your hdl, total cholesterol and triglycerides. I have never prescribed Lipitor (atorvastatin) for it is diet related (except in the case of genetic cause) and sugar is probably the nasty guy because dr john yudkin showed that sugar caused heart disease and many other disease in 1973.
