On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology Podcast, I discuss lovastatin pharmacology, adverse effect, drug interactions, and more!
Lovastatin is broken down by CYP3A4 so drugs like clarithromycin, diltiazem, and others may increase concentrations.
Lovastatin is a lipophilic statin and I discuss the importance of this on the podcast.
Lovastatin has a very short half-life which means that it is ideal to dose this medication at night for maximal efficacy.
