How does Lipostat work?
In order to treat dyslipidemia (high cholesterol levels in the blood), statins such as Lipostat are prescribed by a doctor to a patient along with regular exercise and a balanced diet. Lipostat generally works as an inhibitor to the enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a very vital role in the cholesterol production of the body.
By taking Lipostat regularly, the LDL (low density lipoprotein) or the “bad cholesterol” in the body is minimised. At the same time, the HDL (high density lipoprotein) or the “good cholesterol” in the body is increased. Moreover, regular intake of statins such as Lipostat helps in lowering the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other common heart diseases.
How do I take Lipostat?
Before taking any statin, make sure that it is prescribed by your doctor. The length and strength of the dosage of Lipostat depends on the assessment of the doctor. The treatment is usually started with a low dosage and then gradually increased, depending on how the patient reacts to the treatment.
Lipostat is taken once a day, with or without food. It is normally taken in the evenings. When taking this medicine, it is important that it be taken as a whole (do not crush the medicine). It is also strongly recommended not to skip any intake, even when the patient already feels healthy. See to it that your treatment period is completed accordingly.
If the patient is taking other medications, it is important to take Lipostat 1 hour before or 4 hours after taking these medications.
Are there side effects?
According to reports, statins such as Lipostat may cause adverse effects to the patient. These side effects may include:
- Lack of energy or weakness
- Difficulty in breathing or swallowing
- Hives, itching, rashes
- Swelling in some parts of the body (sometimes in some parts of the face)
- Memory loss or confusion
If you feel any adverse effect when taking Lipostat, it is important that you see your doctor immediately.
