Advicor Information:

Advicor (Niacin/Lovastatin) is used along with a proper diet to help lower bad cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise good cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. Niacin is a Vitamin B3, which lowers the amount of cholesterol in the blood. Lovastatin belongs to the groups of medications called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors and it works to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood by blocking an enzyme that is needed to make cholesterol. Advicor belongs to a class of drugs known as statins. This medication works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver and by helping the body remove fats from the blood. Eating a proper diet, exercising, drinking less alcohol, losing weight if overweight and quitting smoking alongside this medication will help lower cholesterol. Do not take this medication if you are allergic. Talk to your medical professional if you have a medical history of liver disease, kidney disease, alcohol use, stomach/intestinal ulcer, bleeding problems (such as low platelets), low levels of phosphate in the blood, gout. Take this medication as directed by your doctor. Consult your doctor for any possible side effects and precautions. If you experience any serious side effects, contact your medical professional promptly.
