Livalo prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 90 Livalo tablets, at either 1 mg, 2 mg, or 4 mg strengths, will cost over $1,000. 

What is Livalo?

Livalo is a statin medication taken to treat high cholesterol levels. Used alongside exercise and dietary changes, it can reduce:

  1. Total cholesterol
  2. ‘Bad’ low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol
  3. Other blood fats called triglycerides
  4. Proteins that attach to fats in your blood called apolipoproteins.

It can also raise levels of ‘good’ high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol

Livalo is prescribed to:

  • Adults with high LDL cholesterol levels due to genetic causes (primary hyperlipidemia)
  • Adults with high LDL cholesterol levels and low HDL cholesterol levels (mixed dyslipidemia)
  • Children aged 8 years and over who have a condition called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia that raises their LDL cholesterol, triglyceride, and apolipoprotein levels

You take Livalo once daily as a tablet that must be swallowed. It helps to lower your cholesterol levels by reducing your body’s ability to make cholesterol. The medication also causes your body to remove more cholesterol, triglycerides, and apolipoproteins from your blood and can increase your good cholesterol levels. This can reduce your risk of heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes. 

Livalo active ingredients

The active ingredient in Livalo is called pitavastatin. It’s a statin drug that can lower your total cholesterol, bad LDL cholesterol, triglyceride, and apolipoprotein levels. It can also raise your good HDL cholesterol levels. 

When you take Livalo, pitavastatin stops your body from making cholesterol by blocking an enzyme used in the cholesterol-producing process. It also helps your body reabsorb bad LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and apolipoproteins from your blood. Pitavastatin has also been shown to raise your good HDL cholesterol levels, although it’s not fully understood how.

Livalo side effects & Livalo drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Livalo include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Back pain
  • Limb pain
  • Muscle pain

In rare instances, Livalo can cause more serious side effects, like:

  • An increased risk of developing the muscle diseases myopathy and rhabdomyolysis
  • Liver problems, including liver failure
  • Increases in blood-glucose levels (diabetes) 
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication

Livalo can interact with other medications, specifically:  

  • A medication called cyclosporine, used to treat a range of inflammatory autoimmune conditions (Livalo and cyclosporine should not be used together)
  • Fibrate medications, taken to treat high cholesterol levels
  • Niacin, a type of B vitamin used to treat high cholesterol levels
  • Gemfibrozil, used to treat high triglyceride levels
  • Any other medications taken to treat high cholesterol or high triglyceride levels
  • Colchicine, used to treat gout and Behçet’s disease

Livalo warnings & precautions

Don’t take Livalo if you are pregnant, are trying to get pregnant, or think you may be pregnant. Stop taking Livalo immediately and tell your doctor if you fall pregnant whilst taking the medication. You should also not take Livalo if you’re breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed. 

Don’t take Livalo if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient pitavastatin, or any of the other ingredients in Livalo
  • Are currently taking cyclosporine
  • Have any liver problems
