Pravastatin For The Treatment of High Cholesterol – Overview

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , /

Pravastatin is a prescription medication used
to treat high cholesterol levels in order to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Pravastatin belongs to a group of drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, which work by
blocking cholesterol production in the body. This medication comes in tablet form and is
taken once a day, with or without food. Common side effects of pravastatin include heartburn,
headache, memory loss or forgetfulness, and confusion. Pravastatin can also cause dizziness.
Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how pravastatin affects you. Take
this medication only if it is prescribed for you by your healthcare provider. For RxWiki,

  1. no mention of the most common side effect, muscle pain & damage which when really bad can kill you. new studies suggest it could also cause dimentia, cancer alzheimers etc… offers only a 1% lower risk of heart attack or stroke. good luck with ur new big pharma addiction.

  2. So based on this doctors omission this pravastatin is basically to create other damaging things for you which is why they push a lot of it out to everyone and why it's free. All doctors are freaking criminal.
