Lovastatin - Dosage and How to Use

How should Lovastatin be used?

  • Do not stop taking your medication without checking with your healthcare professional. If you stop taking your medication, your ‘bad cholesterol’ level may rise again.
  • You should take this medication with or after food, at night.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only the usual dose. Do not double your dose or use extra medication to make up for the missed dose.
