What is Repatha?
Repatha (evolocumab) is an antibody in the liver that reduces levels of low-density lipoprotein, as known as “bad cholesterol” (LDL), in the bloodstream. By combining Repatha with a low-fat diet, exercise, and other cholesterol medications, patients have lowered their risk of stroke, heart attack, or death caused by high LDL levels and associated arterial plaques.
Repatha is most often prescribed to treat the following conditions that can lead to cardiac complications, stroke, heart attack, and death:
- Familial hypercholesterolemia (genetically inherited tendency to high cholesterol)
- Atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries and plaque buildup)
- Repatha is often prescribed to individuals whose LDL levels are not well controlled by other medications
To see if Repatha is safe for you, your doctor may inquire about other conditions, such as liver or kidney disease, that can lead to complications from Repatha. If breastfeeding, it is important to consult with your doctor to see if Repatha is safe. Repatha is provided in a pre-filled injector pen for self-administration at home, usually monthly or biweekly.

Then, we’ll match you up with the best prescription assistance programs to alleviate the financial burden of paying for Repatha.
How does Repatha Work?
Evolocumab, sold under the brand name Repatha, is a human antibody that suppresses a proprotein called PCSK9 that harms LDL receptors. Specifically, PCSK9 impairs the liver’s ability to remove LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. By suppressing PCSK9, more LDL receptors appear on the liver and can effectively control “bad” cholesterol levels.
Repatha is sometimes prescribed in conjunction with a statin that decreases the amount of LDL manufactured in the liver. While the statin suppresses LDL production, Repatha increases the liver’s ability to clear LDL from the body.
