  Generic Medication guide:

What is the medication known as Mevacor?

Mevacor is a brand of the U.S.-based pharmaceutical giant Merck. The medication is used to lower the total level of cholesterol and the level of harmful cholesterol which blocks vessels and arteries and can contribute to stroke or myocardial infarction.

The effect of Mevacor is achieved because of the action of its active substance named Lovastatin. The substance is used not only by Merck. You can buy Lovastatin at a greatly lower price if you opt for a less known brand. Such versions of the drug are called generics. They are made by the same formula and have an identical effect but their manufacturers don’t advertise the formulations and are able to price them cheaper.

How does Lovastatin act?

Lovastatin is a lipid-lowering drug made from a culture of Aspergillus terrace. It inhibits the initial stages of cholesterol biosynthesis in the liver. When taken orally, Lovastatin as an inactive lactone is hydrolyzed to beta-hydroxy acid (the active form of Lovastatin), which specifically blocks an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion the consumed fats into "bad" cholesterol. This leads to a decrease in blood the concentration of total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), to lesser extent triglycerides and very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), and apolipoprotein B. However, it slightly increases the content of high-density anti-atherogenic lipoproteins (HDL).

If the patient needs to reduce the amount of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) by 20%, then treatment should be started with a dose of 20 mg per day.

In the insufficient effectiveness, the dosage can be raised till the daily intake of 40-80 mg in one or two intakes. The dosage raise can be done with an interval of four weeks.

The highest admissible dosage is 40 mg.

Lovastatin interactions

- The formulation enhances the antiocoagulant (blood-clotting prevention effect) of indirect anticoagulants which raises the risk of bleeding.

- Immunosuppressants, Gemfibrozil, nicotinic acid, cyclosporine, and erythromycins taken with Lovastatin increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis (muscle cell destruction) and acute kidney failure.

- Cholestyramine and Colestipol reduce the amount of Lovastatin active within the body (the use of Lovastatin is admissible in four hours after taking these medicines).

- Cyclosporine elevates the blood plasma levels of the formulation’s metabolites.

- Fibrates, nicotinic acid, itraconazole and other antifungal drugs of the azoles group, and erythromycin increase the risk of myopathy development Precautions for Lovastatin use
