Pravastatin (Pravachol) is an inexpensive drug used to prevent the slow down of medical problems, like atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), that are caused by fats clogging the blood vessels. It may also be used to prevent certain types of heart and blood vessel problems in patients with risk factors for heart problems. This drug is slightly more popular than comparable drugs. As of 2006, it is available in generic and brand versions. Generic pravastatin is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but some pharmacy coupons or cash prices may be lower. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of pravastatin is around $11.69, 81% off the average retail price of $62.75. Compare statins.

Why Can’t I Have Grapefruit With My Statin?

Roni Shye
Roni Shye -

Has your doctor ever warned you about taking statins with grapefruits? It may seem like a strange association, but certain statins like Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Zocor (simvastatin) that are used to lower cholesterol levels can interact with grapefruit and grapefruit juice and cause harmful side effects. 

How do statins interact with grapefruit?

Statins are broken down in the liver by a select group of enzymes that also interact with chemicals in grapefruits. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Antidepressants, blood pressure drugs, and allergy medicines are some of the many popular medications that can affect your dreams, and not always in a good way.

Medications that influence the neurotransmitters in our brain — those same chemicals that affect our mood and alertness — often come with the reported side effect of causing disturbing dreams and nightmares. While nightmares occur in only 1–5% of folks using these medications, here is the list of the most common offenders. See More

12 Medications to Avoid During Pregnancy

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Of the non-genetic causes of birth defects, medications are a well-known offender. Early in the first trimester, many women don’t yet know that they are pregnant. This is a high-risk time to be taking certain medications as this is the major period of organogenesis or development of the organs.

While the science is very limited (pregnant women are generally not included in medication safety studies) there are a handful of medications that are considered category X drugs, or drugs that should not be taken in women who are or may become pregnant. See More

Popular Cholesterol Medication Recalled Due to Mislabeling

Roni Shye
Roni Shye -

Believe it or not, medications are recalled on a daily basis for numerous reasons.  Medication recalls can range from minor to life-threatening incidents if not immediately and appropriately taken care of.

One of the most recent recalls, occurring on July 27th, involves pravastatin—some pravastatin bottles shipped containing bupropion XL instead.

What are these drugs prescribed for?

Pravastatin (generic Pravachol) is for high cholesterol, while bupropion XL (generic for Wellbutrin XL) is used to treat depression. See More

These Medications Could Harm Your Lungs

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The lungs are often subject to harmful side effects from medications because of their large contact surface. While more than 300 medications are known to cause some sort of drug-induced lung disease, some are bigger players than others.

What happens? The most common form of lung injury from medications is drug-induced interstitial lung disease. In the United States, approximately 3% of cases of interstitial (the tissue and space around the air sacs) lung disease are drug induced. See More

Is High Cholesterol Actually Bad for You?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

High cholesterol may be much ado about nothing, especially in older folks. A recent meta-analysis published in BMJ Open raises a strong argument that lowering LDL cholesterol in older people doesn’t help at all.

Where does this leave us? Are we over-treating millions of folks with cholesterol lowering drugs, “statins” like Lipitor (atorvastatin), Crestor (rosuvastatin), and Zocor (simvastatin)? Let’s take a look. See More

Generic Crestor Coming Soon

Elizabeth Davis
Elizabeth Davis -

Good news if you’re one of the millions of Americans that takes Crestor, a popular cholesterol medication.

The generic version of Crestor, rosuvastatin, is expected to hit pharmacies May 2, and you’ll soon be able to save hundreds of dollars a year.

How much does Crestor cost?

Many insurance and Medicare plans either do not cover Crestor or require a high co-pay. If the drug is not covered, you’ll pay around $300 a month. See More

10 Natural Ways to Lower Your Cholesterol

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The best treatment in diseases such as atherosclerosis, or coronary artery disease, is prevention. Lifestyle changes like exercise, quitting smoking and changing your diet are an important place to start, but sometimes you just need more help.

Drugs like the statin medications work well to lower cholesterol but may come with some side effects. I am often asked by patients: what natural remedies really work to lower cholesterol?

There are some options out there, but before I show you some promising and well-studied plants that may help lower cholesterol, please remember a few things: these are unregulated and may carry issues of toxicity. See More

10 Things Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Statins

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Statins are among the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world for a reason: they can lower your LDL cholesterol (the “bad cholesterol”) by 20 – 60%. Statins are also helpful for the prevention of heart disease in some people with high cholesterol.

Popular statin medications include generic atorvastatin (Lipitor) and simvastatin (Zocor) and brand-name Crestor and Livalo.

Time with your doctor can be limited, so you may not have heard all of the upsides and downsides when you were prescribed a statin. See More
