What is Pravastatin?

This medication belongs to a drug group called "statins". Statins are a class of drugs that are often prescribed to aid people with high cholesterol by lowering the amount of cholesterol levels in the blood.

Pravastatin works by reducing the amount of cholesterol that is made in the liver, lowering bad cholesterol and triglycerides, decreasing the risk of heart disease, preventing strokes and heart attacks. It's advised that this medication is used along with maintaining a healthy diet to help lower the levels of bad cholesterol and raise the levels of good cholesterol in the blood.

In addition to eating a healthy diet, other recommended lifestyle changes that could increase the effectiveness of this medication include exercising, weight loss and smoking cessation.

What are the benefits?

Most people who suffer from high cholesterol can benefit from taking a statin medication in order to reduce cholesterol levels and improve their health. Because high cholesterol rarely shows any symptoms, the benefits will not necessarily be outwardly noticeable. However, the health risks that come with high levels of "bad" cholesterol are significant and can include the possibility of heart attacks, stroke or angina (severe chest pains). Taking a medication such as Pravastatin can help avoid these risks.

How does it work?

Cholesterol is often classified into "good" and "bad". This is because high-density lipoproteins are necessary in the body in order to produce hormones and blood cells. However, low-density lipoproteins can cause cholesterol, which builds up in the blood vessels and arteries, making it more difficult for the blood to flow through the body and causing the heart to strain.

This medication works by inhibiting the enzymes, which help to create this type of cholesterol, making it harder for the body to produce good HDL. They also increase the amount of "good" cholesterol in the body, which improves circulation and limits the risks of any complications.

How to use Pravastatin

This is an oral medication that can be taken with or without food on a daily basis. To get the optimum result from this medication, it is recommended that you take it during the evenings.

If you take medication that lowers the cholesterol levels in your blood, you should take this medication at least one hour before or alternatively four hours after taking these medications. Medications that lower the cholesterol levels in your blood can react with Pravastatin, preventing it full absorption

This medication should not be taken with large quantities of alcohol and you should avoid eating grapefruit as it reacts negatively in the body in conjunction with statins.

Precautions when using Pravastatin

Most people with high levels of cholesterol can safely buy Pravastatin in order to improve their health where lifestyle changes such as exercise and low-cholesterol diets haven't worked. However certain people may not be able to use this treatment, this includes:

  • women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • those with liver or kidney disease
  • people who suffer from hypersensitivity to pravastatin sodium
  • those over the age of 70
  • those with a blood disorder

You should not consume grapefruit or grapefruit juice whilst taking Pravastatin because it may tamper with the effectiveness of the medication from being as effective.

Please also note that patients need to have been prescribed this medication in order to buy it from euroClinix.

Are there any side effects?

Like all prescription medications, statins can cause side effects in some people. These side effects should lessen as the body becomes used to the treatment and dosage, but if you do experience them you should stop taking the medication and consult a doctor immediately.


As with most prescription medications, headaches are a common side effect of Pravastatin. Sleep disturbances and dizziness may also occur. It is very rare to experience problems with memory or behavioural changes as a result of this medication.


Indigestion is quite common when taking this medication, as is nausea, stomach pain and diarrhoea.
