How Lipostat works

It is a treatment known as a statin which is one of the most widely used methods to lower cholesterol and prevent health complications. Pravastatin targets a particular enzyme known as HMG-CoA reductase. This particular enzyme plays an important role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. If this enzyme isn't able to function as it normally would then levels of 'bad cholesterol' also known as LDL drops, allowing HDL, which is a 'good' form of cholesterol, to function better. Statins can also have a lowering effect on overall blood lipid levels.

Patients that can use Lipostat

This medication is safe for most patients to use and is known to be particularly effective if it's used in conjunction with exercise and a diet that is low in saturated fat. Lipostat may not be recommended to people who are allergic to the active ingredients in this treatment, pregnant or breastfeeding women and people with liver, kidney or thyroid conditions. There are also some medications that cannot be taken with it so it's important to mention to your doctor if you are taking any other medications to treat an existing condition, even if it's only over-the-counter medicine.

Taking Lipostat

Lipostat should be taken once daily, ideally in the evenings, with a glass of water. It can be taken with or without food, but should never be taken with grapefruit as this can influence how the treatment is digested and absorbed in your bloodstream. It's also not advisable to take it alongside large quantities of alcohol.

Lipostat side effects

Side effects are not common and if they do occur they aren't likely to be serious. The most common side effects may include muscle cramps, dizziness, fatigue and headaches, although these tend to dissipate as the body becomes accustomed to the effects of this treatment. More serious side effects may include an allergic reaction, but if you find that any of the effects of Lipostat are making you uncomfortable, you should seek medical advice.
