Livalo Savings Program Gets an Update

What is Livalo? Livalo (pitavastatin) is cholesterol lowering medication marketed by Kowa Pharmaceuticals. It belongs to the group of cholesterol medications known as “statins” which lower cholesterol by inhibiting the enzyme  HMG-CoA reductase. As a result it lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. What Makes Livalo Different? Many medications, including most  HMG-CoA reductase inhibotors for cholesterol, are metabolized through the liver using the cytochrome P-450 pathways. When someone takes multiple medications which are metabolized through this pathway, there is potential for drug interactions. Livalo does not follow this pathway for elimination from the body and as a result has less potential for drug interactions. Saving on Livalo A major drawback to the use of Livalo is the fact that there is no generic version available. The cash price approaches $200.00 for a 30 day supply of medication. For those with insurance the copay can still be quite expensive. But Kowa Pharmaceuticals has a program which helps patients save money on their Livalo prescription. The copay card available on their website will help decrease the cost of the medication for eligible patients to just $18 per month. Updated Livalo Savings Program The savings program for Livalo was recently updated (June 2014) and all discount copay cards before the update are no longer working. This means patients are required to go the the Livalo website and print a new card to continue savings. For savings on other medication please use our prescription drug card which you can get here....
