In most cases, a Pravachol prescription is used in combination with changes to diet, losing weight (if overweight) and an increased exercise plan to help reduce levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol in the bloodstream.

How do you use pravastatin (Pravachol)?

A Pravachol prescription is available in the form of a tablet, to be taken orally.

The dosage of your pravastatin prescription will depend on recommendations from your doctor based on any other medical conditions you have, your age, response to treatments, as well as other medications you’re already taking.

Typically, this medication is taken once daily. Always follow instructions from your doctor regarding frequency of use and dosage, and try to take your prescription at the same time each day to maximize its effectiveness.

It can take up to four weeks of regular doses, combined with an exercise and diet plan in order to get the most benefit from this medicine.
