Livalo - Overview
Livalo is a medication used as an adjunctive therapy in some types of lipid disorders. People who need a Livalo prescription and are having trouble getting their medication can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Livalo generic when relevant to do so.
What Is Livalo Used For?
Livalo contains the active ingredient pitavastatin. Livalo, like atorvastatin (Lipitor), ezetimibe (Zetia), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor), belongs to a class of medications known as 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors - sometimes referred to as statin medications. By blocking the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, Livalo blocks the production of mevalonate which ultimately decreases the synthesis of cholesterol. Livalo is also thought to help increase LDL uptake out of the blood and into the liver. In the blood, most of the active ingredients in Livalo are found bound to plasma proteins. Livalo and gemfibrozil should not be used together.
Livalo - Coupon and Cost
Livalo is available as Livalo 1 mg tablets, Livalo 2 mg tablets and Livalo 4 mg tablets. Livalo is typically prescribed as Livalo 2 mg take with or without food once per day (generally at the same time). Depending on the patient, Livalo may be titrated to 4 mg once daily but that depends on the patient, response to therapy based on lipid level analysis after one month, and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Dosing adjustments are usually made for people with kidney disease or people taking erythromycin or rifampin concomitantly. For people paying out of pocket, Livalo is expensive, costing approximately $10 per Livalo 2mg tablet at many pharmacies. Given this cost, people will typically get Livalo when their insurance plan pays for it or try to find a Livalo coupon online to help reduce the cost of the medication.
Can I Buy Livalo Online?
To get Livalo in the United States, one first needs to get a prescription from a licensed medical provider. Livalo OTC is not available and one cannot just buy Livalo online without a Livalo prescription. People who need a Livalo prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Livalo medication, including generic Livalo 2 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
Livalo - Side Effects
Livalo prescription medication, like similar drugs, can cause side effects. People planning to use Livalo medication need to discuss possible side effects and other concerns with their medical provider. Possible side effects from Livalo generic use include back pain, muscle pain, gastrointestinal symptoms like constipation or diarrhea, and extremity pain. Livalo use can increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis, myopathy, liver problems and glucose regulation. Livalo and alcohol should not be taken at the same time. People who have a known hypersensitivity to Livalo or other HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor medications should not use the medication.
