Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Who Complied With the Direction to Check Their Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) Level [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 26 ]
    Percentage of participants whose behavior was either correct or acceptable were considered to be compliant. The behavior was considered correct if participants had their LDL-C checked between Weeks 4 and 12. The behavior was considered acceptable if participants had their LDL-C checked between Weeks 2 and 3 (before Week 4) or between Weeks 13 (after Week 12) and 26 or if participants were instructed by a physician that an LDL-C test was not needed.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Took Appropriate Action Based on Their LDL-C Results [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 26 ]
    Percentage of participants whose behavior was either correct or acceptable were considered to be compliant. The behavior was considered correct if participants self-reported an LDL-C level below 130 milligram per deciliter (mg/dL) or normal, or low and decided to continue with atorvastatin OTC or if participants self-reported an LDL-C below 130 mg/dL, or normal, or low but stopped the use because of new conditions preventing them from continuing use. The behavior was considered acceptable if participants self-report LDL-C level between 130 and 135 mg/dL and continued to use atorvastatin OTC without contacting a physician or other health care practitioner or if participants self-reported LDL-C greater than or equal to (>=) 130 mg/dL('borderline high' or 'high' LDL-C), and contacted a physician after getting the LDL-C test results.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Taking an "Ask a Doctor or Pharmacist Before Use" Medication Who Followed the Labeling and Contacted a Doctor or Pharmacist Before Using Study Medication [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 26 ]
    Percentage of participants whose behavior was either correct or acceptable were considered to be compliant. 'Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use' medication included human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) medicine, digoxin, telaprevir, rifampin, colchicine, or oral contraceptives. The behavior of the participants was considered correct if participants asked a doctor or pharmacist before use. The behavior was considered acceptable if participants contacted a doctor or pharmacist within 7 days of initiating therapy.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Stopped Study Medication Use and Asked a Doctor if They Experienced Any of the Labeled "Stop Use and Ask a Doctor" Symptoms [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 26 ]
    Percentage of participants whose behavior was either correct or acceptable were considered to be compliant. The "Stop use and ask a doctor" symptoms included: (a) unexplained muscle pain or weakness or tenderness, (b) unusual fatigue, (c) loss of appetite (d) upper belly pain (e) dark-colored urine or (f) yellowing of the whites of eyes or skin. The behavior of the participants was considered correct if participants stopped use and contacted a doctor within 7 days after the event (symptom development).The behavior was considered acceptable if participants either stopped use or contacted a doctor (but did not do both) within the 7 days' timeframe.
