Is Pivasta the equivalent of Lovallo?

Lovallo is prescribed for lowering LDLs is Pivasta its equivalent? ## Pivasta (Pitavastatin) is used together with lifestyle changes (diet, weight-loss, exercise) to reduce the amount of fatty substances in your blood such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and to increase the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol'). I have not found specific details about Lovallo in regards to comparing the two drugs, so I'm unable to tell you if these two drugs are "equivalent" in that sense; but according to your description, both drugs do serve the same purpose. I hope this helps!

Side effects & effectiveness of LIVALO

i am considering using LIVALO over 40 mg of VYTORIN to lower my total cholesterol level, raise my HDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides,reduce the risk of heart attack & mortality !! ## Livalo contains the active ingredient pitavastatin, it is commonly used to help lower cholesterol. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Learn more: Vytorin contains the active ingredients Ezetimibe and Simvastatin, which has also been proven to help lower cholesterol. The side effect profile is the same as that of the Livalo. Are you saying you've chosen one over the other, or are using both? ## Is there truth about Vytorin increasing the chance of cancer ?
