Aspirin, Buffered-Pravastatin
Oral


The medications in this product are a "statin" (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) and aspirin. Pravastatin works by lowering cholesterol (LDL) and fat (triglycerides) levels in your blood. Aspirin in low doses acts as a "blood thinner" preventing blood clots. When used along with a cholesterol-lowering diet, these medications reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. In general, pravastatin is prescribed after non-drug treatment options have not been fully successful at lowering cholesterol (e.g., diet change, increase in exercise, weight loss if overweight).
