Pravastatin is a generic statin medication which is prescribed to patients with high cholesterol levels to help reduce the risks of heart disease.
It increases the production of "good" cholesterol, which stops a build-up of fat in the arteries and blood vessels and improves circulation.
Please note the doctor will only be able to prescribe this medication if you have taken it before or been recommended it by a doctor.
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.
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.
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.
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.
