Take atorvastatin exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Do not break an atorvastatin tablet unless your doctor has told you.

Atorvastatin is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Take the medicine at the same time each day. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results.

You may need to stop using atorvastatin for a short time if you have:

  • uncontrolled seizures;

  • an electrolyte imbalance (such as high or low potassium levels in your blood);

  • severely low blood pressure;

  • a severe infection or illness; or

  • surgery or a medical emergency.

To be sure this medicine is helping your condition and is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested often. Visit your doctor regularly.

Atorvastatin is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely. You may need to take atorvastatin on a long-term basis for the treatment of high cholesterol. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if your next dose is less than 12 hours away. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

Atorvastatin is in a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." Atorvastatin reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).

Atorvastatin is used to treat high cholesterol, and to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors.

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to atorvastatin: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop taking atorvastatin and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

  • unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness;

  • confusion, memory problems;

  • fever, unusual tiredness, and dark colored urine;

  • swelling, weight gain, urinating less than usual or not at all;

  • increased thirst, increased urination, hunger, dry mouth, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, blurred vision, weight loss; or

  • nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious atorvastatin side effects may include:

  • mild muscle pain;

  • diarrhea; or

  • mild nausea.

  • nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious Crestor side effects may include:

  • headache, depressed mood;

  • mild muscle pain;

  • joint pain;

  • sleep problems (insomnia), nightmares;

  • constipation;

  • mild nausea; or

  • stomach pain or indigestion.

You should not take Crestor if you are allergic to rosuvastatin, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, or if you have liver disease.

To make sure you can safely take Crestor, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:

  • history of liver disease;
  • history of kidney disease;
  • diabetes;

  • a thyroid disorder; or

  • if you drink more than 2 alcoholic beverages daily.

People of Asian descent may absorb rosuvastatin at a higher rate than other people. Make sure your doctor knows if you are Asian. You may need a lower than normal starting dose.

In rare cases, Crestor can cause a condition that results in the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue, leading to kidney failure. This condition may be more likely to occur in older adults and in people who have kidney disease or poorly controlled hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).

Tell your doctor about all other medications you use. Certain other drugs can increase your risk of serious muscle problems, and it is very important that your doctor knows if you are using any of them:

  • cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune);

  • gemfibrozil (Lopid), fenofibric acid (Fibricor, Trilipix), or fenofibrate (Antara, Fenoglide, Lipofen, Lofibra, Tricor, Triglide);

  • HIV medications such as atazanavir (Reyataz), ritonavir (Norvir), lopinavir/ritonavir (Kaletra), saquinavir (Invirase), and others; or

  • medicines that contain niacin (Advicor, Niaspan, Niacor, Simcor, Slo-Niacin, and others).

Crestor is in a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." Rosuvastatin reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).

Crestor is used to lower cholesterol and triglycerides (types of fat) in the blood.

Crestor is also used to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other heart complications in people with diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors

  • One Ezetrol tablet should be taken once a day. You can take your tablet at any time of day, but if you always take it at the same time of day this will help you remember it.
  • The tablet can be taken either with or without food.
  • If you forget to take a dose don’t worry, just leave out that dose and take your next dose as usual. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
  • You should keep taking this medicine regularly every day unless your doctor tells you to stop. This medicine is a long-term treatment that needs to be taken daily on a regular basis to help control your cholesterol. If you stop treatment your cholesterol levels will start to rise again.



Ezetrol tablets contain the active ingredient ezetimibe, which is type of medicine known as a cholesterol absorption inhibitor. It is used to lower high cholesterol levels.

Ezetimibe works by preventing cholesterol and other plant sterols that are consumed in the diet from being absorbed from the small intestine into the bloodstream. It also prevents cholesterol released from the bile duct into the intestine from being reabsorbed into the bloodstream. The overall result is a reduction in cholesterol levels in the blood.

Ezetimibe is used to lower cholesterol in people with high cholesterol levels. It is normally used when another type of cholesterol-lowering medicine called a statin (for example simvastatin, atorvastatin), together with a low cholesterol diet and increased exercise, has not lowered cholesterol sufficiently. Ezetimibe is added to the statin treatment because it works in a different way to statins (which lower cholesterol by preventing its production by the liver) and so it can boost their cholesterol-lowering effect.

It is important to continue to follow a cholesterol-lowering diet and exercise regime while taking ezetimibe.


  • Lowering high blood cholesterol levels (primary hypercholesterolaemia). This medicine is usually used in combination with a statin medicine, or on its own for people who can’t take a statin. A cholesterol-lowering diet should be continued.
  • Lowering inherited high blood cholesterol levels (familial hypercholesterolaemia). This medicine is used in conjunction with a statin medicine and a cholesterol-lowering diet.
  • A rare inherited disease with raised levels of plant sterols similar to cholesterol in the blood (homozygous sitosterolaemia or phytosterolaemia). In this case this medicine is used on its own, together with a cholesterol-lowering diet.



Medicines and their possible side effects can affect individual people in different ways. The following are some of the side effects that are known to be associated with this medicine. Just because a side effect is stated here does not mean that all people using this medicine will experience that or any side effect.

Ezetrol taken on its own

Common (affect between 1 and 10 out of every 100 people)

  • Abdominal pain.
  • Diarrhoea.
  • Excess gas in the stomach and intestines (flatulence).
  • Fatigue.




  • t is important that you continue to follow the diet and exercise advice given to you by your doctor or nurse while you are taking this medicine. This medicine only helps to control your cholesterol levels and should not be used as a substitute for eating healthily and taking regular exercise. Discuss this with your doctor.
  • If you are taking this medicine with a statin you should have blood tests to monitor your liver function before starting, and regularly throughout treatment.
  • This medicine may rarely have side effects on the muscles. For this reason you should inform your doctor immediately if you experience any unexplained muscular symptoms, such as pain, tenderness or weakness while taking this medicine. Your doctor may need to check for side effects on the muscles by taking a blood test to measure the level of a compound called creatinine phosphokinase (CPK) in your blood.

Not to be used in

  • Rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption (Ezetrol tablets contain lactose).
  • People with active liver disease (if taken with a statin).
  • People with unexplained raised results in liver function tests (if taken with a statin).
  • Pregnancy (if taken with a statin).
  • Breastfeeding.
  • This medicine is not recommended for people with moderate to severely decreased liver function.

This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy.

Fluvastatin comes as a capsule and an extended-release (long-acting) tablet to take by mouth. The capsule is usually taken with or without food once a day at bedtime or twice a day. The extended-release tablet is usually taken once a day with or without food. Take fluvastatin at around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take fluvastatin exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Swallow the extended-release tablets whole; do not split, chew, or crush them.

Your doctor may start you on a low dose of fluvastatin and gradually increase your dose, not more than once every 4 weeks.

Continue to take fluvastatin even if you feel well. Do not stop taking fluvastatin without talking to your doctor.

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it has been more than 12 hours since your last dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. 

Fluvastatin is used together with diet, weight loss, and exercise to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke and to decrease the chance that heart surgery will be needed in people who have heart disease or who are at risk of developing heart disease. Fluvastatin is also used to decrease the amount of fatty substances such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and triglycerides in the blood and to increase the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol') in the blood. Fluvastatin may also be used to decrease the amount of cholesterol and other fatty substances in the blood in children and teenagers 10 to 17 years of age who have familial heterozygous hypercholesterolemia (an inherited condition in which cholesterol cannot be removed from the body normally). Fluvastatin is in a class of medications called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins). It works by slowing the production of cholesterol in the body to decrease the amount of cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body.

Accumulation of cholesterol and fats along the walls of your arteries (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow and, therefore, the oxygen supply to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Lowering your blood level of cholesterol and fats with fluvastatin has been shown to prevent heart disease, angina (chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks.

Fluvastatin may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

  • headache

  • heartburn

  • difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep

  • sinus pain

  • cough

  • memory loss or forgetfulness

  • confusion

Before taking fluvastatin,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to fluvastatin, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in fluvastatin capsules or extended release tablets. Ask your pharmacist for a list of the ingredients..
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or plan to take. Be sure to mention any of the following: anticoagulants ('blood thinners') such as warfarin; cimetidine (Tagamet); colchicine (Colcrys); cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune); diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren); digoxin (Lanoxin); erythromycin (E.E.S., E-Mycin, Erythrocin); fluconazole (Diflucan), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase, Micronase); ketoconazole (Nizoral); omeprazole (Prilosec); other cholesterol-lowering medications such as cholestyramine (Questran), fenofibrate (Tricor), gemfibrozil (Lopid), and niacin (nicotinic acid, Niacor, Niaspan); phenytoin (Dilantin); ranitidine (Zantac); rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane); and spironolactone (Aldactone). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects. Many other medications may also interact with fluvastatin, so be sure to tell your doctor about all the medications you are taking, even those that do not appear on this list.
  • tell your doctor if you have liver disease. Your doctor will order laboratory tests to see how well your liver is working even if you do not think you have liver disease.Your doctor will probably tell you not to take fluvastatin if you have liver disease or if the tests show that you may be developing liver disease.
  • tell your doctor if you drink more than 2 alcoholic beverages per day, if you are 65 years of age or older, and if you have ever had liver disease or have or ever had muscle aches or weakness, diabetes, low blood pressure, seizures, or thyroid or kidney disease.
  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, or plan to become pregnant. You should not become pregnant while you are taking fluvastatin. Talk to your doctor about birth control methods that you can use during your treatment. If you become pregnant while taking fluvastatin, stop taking fluvastatin and call your doctor immediately. Fluvastatin may harm the fetus.
  • do not breast-feed while you are taking this medication.
  • if you are having surgery, including dental surgery, tell the doctor or dentist that you are taking fluvastatin. If you are hospitalized due to infection or serious injury, tell the doctor who treats you that you are taking fluvastatin.
  • ask your doctor about the safe use of alcoholic beverages while you are taking fluvastatin. Alcohol can increase the risk of serious side effects.

Take Lipitor exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Do not break an Lipitor tablet unless your doctor has told you.

Lipitor is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Take the medicine at the same time each day. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results.

You may need to stop using Lipitor for a short time if you have:

  • uncontrolled seizures;

  • an electrolyte imbalance (such as high or low potassium levels in your blood);

  • severely low blood pressure;

  • a severe infection or illness; or

  • surgery or a medical emergency.

To be sure Lipitor is helping your condition and is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested often. Visit your doctor regularly.

Lipitor is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely. You may need to take Lipitor on a long-term basis for the treatment of high cholesterol. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if your next dose is less than 12 hours away. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

Lipitor (atorvastatin) belongs to a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." Lipitor reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).

Lipitor is used to treat high cholesterol, and to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors.

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Lipitor: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop taking Lipitor and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

  • unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness;

  • confusion, memory problems;

  • fever, unusual tiredness, and dark colored urine;

  • swelling, weight gain, urinating less than usual or not at all;

  • increased thirst, increased urination, hunger, dry mouth, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, blurred vision, weight loss; or

  • nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious Lipitor side effects may include:

  • mild muscle pain;

  • diarrhea; or

  • mild nausea.

ou should not take Lipitor if you are allergic to atorvastatin, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, or if you have liver disease.

To make sure you can safely take Lipitor, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:

  • history of liver disease;

  • history of kidney disease;

  • muscle pain or weakness;

  • a thyroid disorder; or

  • if you drink more than 2 alcoholic beverages daily.

In rare cases, Lipitor can cause a condition that results in the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue, leading to kidney failure. This condition may be more likely to occur in older adults and in people who have kidney disease or poorly controlled hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).

Tell your doctor about all other medications you use. Certain other drugs can increase your risk of serious muscle problems, and it is very important that your doctor knows if you are using any of them:

  • diltiazem (Cardizem, Cartia, Dilacor, Diltia, Diltzac, Taztia, Tiazac);

  • gemfibrozil (Lopid), fenofibric acid (Fibricor, Trilipix), or fenofibrate (Antara, Fenoglide, Lipofen, Lofibra, Tricor, Triglide);

  • telaprevir (Incivek);

  • antibiotics such as clarithromycin (Biaxin) or erythromycin (E.E.S., EryPed, Ery-Tab, Erythrocin, Pediazole);

  • antifungal medicines such as fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox), ketoconazole (Nizoral), or voriconazole (Vfend);

  • HIV medications such as darunavir (Prexista), fosamprenavir (Lexiva), ritonavir (Norvir), lopinavir/ritonavir (Kaletra), nelfinavir (Viracept), saquinavir (Invirase), or tipranavir (Aptivus);

  • medicines that contain niacin (Advicor, Niaspan, Niacor, Simcor, Slo-Niacin, and others); or

  • drugs that weaken your immune system, such as steroids, cancer medicine, or medicines used to prevent organ transplant rejection, such as cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune), sirolimus (Rapamune), or tacrolimus (Prograf).

Take Lipitor exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Do not break an Lipitor tablet unless your doctor has told you.

Lipitor is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Take the medicine at the same time each day. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results.

You may need to stop using Lipitor for a short time if you have:

  • uncontrolled seizures;

  • an electrolyte imbalance (such as high or low potassium levels in your blood);

  • severely low blood pressure;

  • a severe infection or illness; or

  • surgery or a medical emergency.

To be sure Lipitor is helping your condition and is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested often. Visit your doctor regularly.

Lipitor is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely. You may need to take Lipitor on a long-term basis for the treatment of high cholesterol. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.

  1. Your doctor will advise you on a lowfat diet which you should continue over the full treatment period. Always take this treatment exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
    LIPOSTAT can be taken with or without food, with half a glass of water.

    Dosage

    Adults:

    • In the treatment of high levels of cholesterol and fats in the blood: the usual dose is 10-40 mg once

      a day, preferably in the evening.

    • In the prevention of heart and blood vessel diseases: the usual dose is 40 mg once a day, preferably

      in the evening.

      The maximum daily dose of 40 mg of pravastatin should not be exceeded. Your doctor shall tell you which dose suits you. 


      If you forget to take LIPOSTAT

      If you miss a dose, simply take your usual dose when it is next due.
      Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
      If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist. 


LIPOSTAT belongs to a group of medicines called statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors). It prevents the production of cholesterol by the liver and consequently reduces the levels of cholesterol and other fats (triglycerides) in your body. When there are excessive levels of cholesterol in the blood, the cholesterol accumulates on the walls of blood vessels and blocks them.

This condition is called hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis and it may lead to:

  • chest pain (angina pectoris), when a blood vessel in the heart is partially blocked,

  • a heart attack (myocardial infarction), when a blood vessel in the heart is completely blocked,

  • a stroke (cerebrovascular accident), when a blood vessel in the brain is completely blocked. This medicine is used in 3 situations:

    In the treatment of high levels of cholesterol and fats in the blood
    LIPOSTAT is used to lower high levels of "bad" cholesterol and to raise the levels of "good" cholesterol

in the blood when changes to diet and exercise have failed to adequately do this.

In the prevention of heart and blood vessel diseases

  • If you have high levels of cholesterol in your blood and risk factors favouring these diseases (if you

    smoke, are overweight, if you have high blood sugar levels or high blood pressure, if you take little exercise), LIPOSTAT is used to reduce the risk of you having heart and blood vessel diseases and to lower your risk of dying from these diseases.

  • If you have already had a stroke or if you have pains in the chest (unstable angina), and even if you have normal cholesterol levels, LIPOSTAT is used to reduce the risk of you having another heart attack or stroke in the future, and to lower your risk of dying from these diseases.

    After organ transplants
    If you have had an organ transplant and receive medication to prevent your body rejecting the transplant, LIPOSTAT is used to reduce increased levels of fats in the blood. 

Like all medicines, LIPOSTAT can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Stop taking LIPOSTAT and tell your doctor immediately if you develop any unexplained or persistent muscle pain, tenderness, weakness, or cramps, especially, if at the same time you feel unwell or have a high temperature.
In very rare cases, muscle problems can be serious (rhabdomylosis) and can lead to a serious, life- threatening kidney disease.

Sudden severe allergic reactions including swelling of the face, lip, tongue or wind pipe which can cause great difficulty in breathing. This is a very rare reaction which can be serious if it occurs. You should tell your doctor immediately if it happens.

The following side effects are uncommon and may affect more than 1 out of 1 000 persons:

  • Effects on nervous system: dizziness, tiredness, headache or sleep disturbances, including

    insomnia;

  • Effects on vision: blurred or double vision;

  • Digestive effects: indigestion, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain or discomfort, diarrhoea or

    constipation and wind;

  • Effects on skin and hair: itching, pimples, hives, rashes, scalp and hair problems (including hair

    loss);

  • Urinary and genital effects: bladder problems (painful or more frequent urination, having to pass

    water at night) and sexual difficulties;

  • Effects on muscles and joints: muscle and joint pain.

    The following side effects are very rare and may affect less than 1 out of 10 000 persons:

    • Effects on nervous system: problems with touch including burning or tingling sensations or

      numbness which may indicate damage to nerves;

    • Effects on skin: a severe skin disease (lupus erythematous-like syndrome);

    • Effects on liver: inflammation of the liver or pancreas; jaundice (recognisable by a yellowing of the

      skin and of whites of the eyes); very rapid death of liver cells (fulminant hepatic necrosis);

    • Effects on muscles and bones: inflammation of one or more muscles leading to pain or weakness in muscles (myositis or polymyositis); pain or weakness in muscles, inflammation of tendons which

      may be complicated by rupture of tendons.

    • Abnormal blood tests: increases in transaminases (a group of enzymes occurring naturally in the

      blood) which may be a sign of liver problems. Your doctor may want to perform tests periodically to

      check these.
      If any of the side effects gets serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist. 

  1. Do not take LIPOSTAT

    • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to pravastatin or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (see Further Information);

    • if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant or if you are breast-feeding (see Pregnancy and breast-feeding);

    • if you have a liver disease (active liver disease);

    • if several blood tests have shown abnormal functioning of your liver (increased levels of liver enzymes

      in the blood).

      Take special care with LIPOSTAT

      Before you take this treatment, you should tell your doctor if you have or have had any medical problems such as:

  • a liver disease or alcohol problems (drinking large amounts of alcohol);

  • muscle disorders caused by a hereditary disease;

  • muscle problems caused by another medicine belonging to the statins group (HMG-CoA reductase

    inhibitor drugs) or one belonging to the group known as fibrates (see Taking other medicines).

    If you have suffered from any of these problems, or if you are older than 70 years, your doctor will need to carry out a blood test before and possibly during your treatment. These blood tests will be used to evaluate your risk of muscle-related side effects.
    If you feel any unexplained cramps or muscle pains during treatment, tell your doctor immediately. While you are on this medicine your doctor will monitor you closely if you have diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes. You are likely to be at risk of developing diabetes if you have high levels of sugars and fats in your blood, are overweight and have high blood pressure.

    Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking LIPOSTAT if you:

Have severe respiratory failure

Using other medicines
When combined with this treatment, the medicines stated below may result in an increased risk of developing muscle problems (see Possible side effects). It is important that you inform your doctor whether you are already being treated with:

  • a medicine which lowers the cholesterol level in the blood (fibrates, e.g. gemfibrozil, fenofibrate);

  • a medicine which lowers the body’s immune defences (ciclosporin);

  • a medicine which treats the infections caused by bacteria (an antibiotic such as erythromycin or

    clarithromycin);

  • another medicine which lowers the level of cholesterol in your blood (nicotinic acid).

    If you are also using a medicine which lowers the level of fat in your blood (of the resin-type such as colestyramine or colestipol), this treatment should be taken at least one hour before or four hours after you have taken the resin. This is because the resin can affect the absorption of LIPOSTAT if the two medicines are taken too closely together.

    Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using or have recently used other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

    Taking LIPOSTAT with food and drink

    This treatment can be taken with or without food, with half a glass of water.
    You should always keep your alcohol intake to a minimum. If you are concerned about how much alcohol you can drink while you are taking this medicine, you should discuss this with your doctor.

    Pregnancy

    Do not take LIPOSTAT during pregnancy. If you discover that you are pregnant, you should inform your doctor immediately.
    Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.

    Breast-feeding

    Do not take LIPOSTAT if you intend to breast-feed as this treatment passes into the mother's milk.

    Driving and using machines

    LIPOSTAT does not usually affect your ability to drive or use machines. If you experience any dizziness, blurred or double vision during treatment, make sure you are fit to drive and use machines before attempting to do so.

    Important information about some of the ingredients of LIPOSTAT

    LIPOSTAT contains lactose.
    If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product.

Pravastatin Sodium Tablets belongs to a group of medicines called statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors). It prevents the production of cholesterol by the liver and consequently reduces the levels of cholesterol and other fats (triglycerides) in your body. When there are excessive levels of cholesterol in the blood, the cholesterol accumulates on the walls of blood vessels and block them. This condition is called hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis, may lead to:

  • ?  chest pain (angina pectoris), when a blood vessels in the heart is partially blocked,

  • ?  a heart attack (myocardial infraction), when a blood vessels in the heart is completely

    blocked,

  • ?  a stroke (cerebrovascular accident), when a blood vessel in the brain is completely

    blocked.

    This medicine is used in 3 situations:
    In the treatment of high levels of cholesterol and fats in the blood
    Pravastatin Sodium Tablets is used to lower high levels of "bad" cholesterol and to raise the levels of "good" cholesterol in the blood when changes to diet and exercise have failed to adequately do this.

    In the prevention of heart and blood vessel diseases

  • ?  If you have high levels of cholesterol in your blood and risk factors favouring these

    diseases (if you smoke, are overweight, if you have high blood sugar levels or high blood pressure, if you take little exercise), Pravastatin Sodium Tablets is used to reduce the risk of you having heart and blood vessel diseases and to lower your risk of dying from these diseases.

  • ?  If you have already had a heart attack or have unstable angina (chest pain) and you have normal cholesterol levels, Pravastatin Sodium reduces the risk of you having another heart attack or stroke in the future.
