Livalo (Pitavastatin) Medication Information

Uses

Your doctor may prescribe Livalo to treat cholesterol levels, and it may reduce the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke. Livalo belongs to a class of medications called “statins.”

Statins work by correcting imbalances in cholesterol levels called hyperlipidemia. They increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL) while decreasing harmful cholesterol (LDL and triglycerides).

It may also be prescribed for patients eight years of age or older with familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH).

Over time, high cholesterol levels can cause “tears” on the inside of the blood vessels. When the body repairs this damage, small clots can form and break off where they can travel to other parts of the body and cause damage.

Dosage

The starting dose is 2 mg by mouth once daily. Cholesterol levels should be checked four weeks after starting the medication and the dose adjusted as needed.

The maximum dose of Livalo is 4 mg by mouth once daily.

The dosage should be reduced for people with impaired kidney function.

Side Effects

Common side effects of Livalo and other statins include:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Back pain
  • Myalgia

Precautions

Tell your doctor if you have a history of liver problems. You may need liver enzymes to be monitored when you start therapy.

Use caution if you have diabetes. Pitavastatin and other statins can increase serum blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C. You should have blood sugar labs monitored while taking Livalo.

Livalo should be used with caution in patients who are 65 years of age or older.

This medication should be temporarily stopped while undergoing major elective surgery.

Interactions

Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all medications you are taking before starting Livalo. Common interactions include:

  • Cyclosporine
  • Daptomycin
  • Erythromycin
  • Gemfibrozil
  • Phenytoin
  • Red yeast rice
  • Rifampin

Storage

Protect from light and store it at room temperature between 15°C and 30°C.

Pharmacist Tips

  • Report any abnormal muscle pain that starts after taking Livalo, especially if you experience brown- or dark-colored urination at the same time.
  • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant while taking statins.
  • Do not take if you plan to breastfeed.

Pitavastatin FAQs

How long do I need to take Livalo?

Livalo and other cholesterol medications are chronic and are usually taken lifelong. However, in some people, hyperlipidemia can be managed effectively with diet and exercise. Talk with your doctor about how long you will be taking Livalo.

 

How long does it take Livalo to work?

The effects of Livalo should be apparent within about four weeks of starting. You will not be able to tell that Pitavastatin is working without doing a lab test to check cholesterol levels.

 

Do I need to take Livalo during a certain time of day?

Some statins need to be taken at night before bed. However, Livalo can be taken during any time of the day as long as you take it at the same time each day.
