How long does it take if you stop Lipitor (atorvastatin) for the statin to leave the body?

In brief: A week

Atorvastatin should be mostly cleared from the body by a week after the last dose.
The biochemical effects of the drug are likely to be minimal sooner than this. Drug clearance varies person to person and the timing given above can vary for an individual.
