Livalo (pitavastatin) is a statin medication used to treat high cholesterol in adults. Livalo works by slowing the production of cholesterol made by the liver to decrease the amount of cholesterol build up on the walls of arteries blocking blood flow. This medication should be used alongside lifestyle changes such as a low-fat diet, exercising, losing weight and stopping smoking in order to lower blood levels of “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides and to increase levels of “good” cholesterol. Lowering “bad’ cholesterol and increasing “good” cholesterol helps to decrease the risk of heart disease and can help to prevent strokes and heart attacks.
