On this podcast episode, I discuss fluvastatin pharmacology, adverse effects, pharmacokinetics, and much more.
Fluvastatin is only a low to moderate-intensity statin which explains its limited use compared to rosuvastatin or atorvastatin.
I discuss drug interactions in the podcast but one important one to recognize is drugs that can inhibit CYP2C9.
Fluvastatin is considered a lipophilic statin. I have previously discussed this on the Meded101 blog which you can find here.
