Atherosclerosis is the accumulation of cholesterol and fats in your arteries. It causes a decrease in blood flow and oxygen supply to your brain, heart and other parts. Pravastatin, which lowers your blood cholesterol and fats, has been proven to reduce heart disease, strokes, heart attacks, and angina (chest pain).
Pravastatin is available as a tablet that you can take by mouth. Pravastatin can be taken with or without food once daily.
Pravastatin should be taken at the same time each day. It will help you remember to take your dose. You should carefully follow the directions on your prescription label. Ask your doctor for clarification if you are unsure. Take Pravastatin exactly as directed by your doctor.
Your doctor might start you on a low dose and increase it gradually, but not more often than every four weeks.
Pravastatin should be continued even if you feel better. Pravastatin should not be stopped without consulting your doctor.
You may also be prescribed this medication for another purpose. Talk to your doctor about this possibility.
You should take Pravastatin as soon as possible if you have missed a dose. If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Instead, continue with the regular dose. To make up for the missed dose, do not take more than one.
The medication dose you take will depend on your medical conditions, age, response to the medication and any other medications you have.
