Are you experiencing challenges with your current cholesterol medication? If so, you’re not alone.

According to a survey studying usage of statins (the largest known cholesterol survey conducted in the US,
involving 10,138 respondents):

*Of the 10,138 respondents 1,220 were former statin users. 8,918 were current users.

LIVALO — A statin medication that is processed differently in the body than most statins.

FPO Medical Illustration
Did you know?

About 75% of all drugs that are processed in the body share a common metabolic pathway in the liver known as cytochrome P450 (CYP450). When drugs that share this CYP450 pathway are taken together, they can interact with each other, potentially causing drug interactions. LIVALO is different from most statins — it is not primarily processed through the CYP450 pathway that most other cholesterol medications share.

LIVALO metabolism matters

Together with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and along with exercise, LIVALO can help you achieve healthier cholesterol levels. LIVALO is different from most other statins in that it is metabolized (processed) differently in the body — and this is an important difference, because it may mean less chance for drug interactions.

Ask your doctor if LIVALO may be right for you.

Drug interactions with LIVALO:
  • If you are taking cyclosporine, do not take LIVALO.
  • Caution should be taken when using LIVALO in combination with other cholesterol drugs like niacin and fibrates, as this may increase your risk of serious muscle problems.
  • Avoid use with gemfibrozil.
  • Some drugs, like erythromycin and rifampin, may lead to drug interactions and require a lower daily dose of LIVALO when used in combination.
Select Safety Information about your liver and LIVALO:

Anyone with active liver disease should not take LIVALO. Serious liver problems have been reported rarely in patients taking statins, including LIVALO. Your doctor should do liver tests before you start, and if you have symptoms of liver problems while you are taking LIVALO. Tell your doctor right away if you feel more tired than usual, have a loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark-colored urine, or yellowing of the skin or eyes.

LIVALO — a cholesterol-lowering medicine that may be less likely to interact with certain other medications.

Treating high cholesterol can be a challenge — but especially if you’re taking multiple medications. Are you afraid that your statin medication may interact with other medications you are taking? It is not uncommon for people to not fill their statin prescriptions due to fear of drug interactions between their statin and other medications they are taking.

Ask your doctor if LIVALO may be right for you.

Doctor visits can feel short. Remembering your questions can be hard.
