What Is Livalo?
Livalo (pitavastatin) is prescribed for adults to lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, and triglycerides and raise HDL (good) cholesterol) in the blood. The goal is to prevent cardiovascular disease and lower the risk of stroke or heart attack. It is used in conjunction with proper diet and certain other lifestyle changes.
Livalo is taken by mouth, with or without food, preferably at the same time every day. When Livalo is prescribed in conjunction with other cholesterol-lowering medications, a certain amount of time must pass between taking them and taking Livalo.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
People with high blood levels of bad cholesterol are at risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Though people with hypercholesterolemia don’t necessarily feel ill, they live with the knowledge that they have a higher risk of having a stroke or heart attack. Knowing that they have a higher than normal risk of a life-threatening event can be very stressful.
That stress is compounded for those who are having trouble paying for their Livalo prescription. Some insurance plans don’t include Livalo in their prescription formulary, and the ones that do may require prior authorization before covering the cost of Livalo. If not covered by insurance, Livalo can cost about $5,000 per year, which can make it unaffordable for many people.
Fortunately, help with paying for Livalo is available through patient assistance programs. The problem is that many of the people most in need of patient assistance don’t know that such programs exist. Simplefill is working hard to raise awareness of patient assistance programs, and we have made it our mission to connect people in need of some financial relief with the programs that can provide it.
How Does Livalo Work?
Livalo blocks an enzyme in the liver, HMG-CoA reductase, that is essential to the synthesis of cholesterol. Consequently, the liver produces significantly less LDL and triglycerides and increases blood levels of HDL.
