Pravastatin half life

Common Questions and Answers about Pravastatin half life


Avatar m tn I've read that the half-life on it is something like 77 hours, so I guess it should be out of my system in about 6 days. I'll see how it's looking then. Thanks again.
Avatar m tn I have to say I have never heard of this. I would have to read and see why they would do this lifetime treatment. I would think the bacteria will get resistant to it after a time anyway. You are correct to question it. I'll try to get back to you after doing some research on it.
Avatar n tn This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity. PRAVASTATIN SODIUM (in Pravachol) may interact with CHOLESTYRAMINE (in Questran) When these drugs are taken at the same time, cholestyramine may combine with pravastatin in the stomach and prevent it from being absorbed into the body. If this happens, then potentially less pravastatin would be available for the body to use and blood levels could become too low. This could make pravastatin less effective.

Avatar f tn It made me so sick that I called him back and asked what to do and he said it would be alright to take a half pill twice a day instead of a whole one. This is the second time I've had a bladder infection in two months. The first time was when I was in the hospital. No catheter was used. They sent me home with a script for Septra and it cleared up with in 5 days. This time I'm on day 7 and I'm still having some pain and urgency.
343765 tn?1202526132 I take 200mgs of Metropolol, 6mg of Xanax, and 40 mgs of Pravastatin. Someone mentioned a calcium blocker. My heart has been fairly calm yesterday and today(SSSHHHHH I MIGHT JINX IT) and I have been very active. Last night when I laid down to go to sleep it started on a roll and I turned over on my back which seemed to ease it up. Does anyone else take these meds that can tell me if it makes their palps worse? I value everyones opinion on here. We are all in the same boat.
469720 tn?1388149949 The most prominent cholesterol drugs are in the statin family, an array of powerful treatments that includes Mevacor (lovastatin), Lescol (fluvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Baycol (cervastatin), and Lipitor (atorvastatin). Many doctors say statin drugs have revolutionized patient care.
Avatar f tn The authors followed 84 patients for 27 weeks. All of the patients had coronary artery disease. One-half of the patients received intravenous chelation therapy during the study period and the other one-half received intravenous placebo (fluid with no drug). Neither the physicians nor the patients knew whether they were receiving chelation or placebo. Patients were given exercise tests to see how long they could exercise before their electrocardiogram (ECG) showed changes indicating ischemia.
Avatar n tn I have very high cholesterol and I take meds for it but the only way to raise your good cholesterol is through exercise. By the way I take 200mgs of Metropolol a day. 40 mgs of Pravastatin and 6mgs of Xanax. I feel like I rattle when I walk like a shaking a pill bottle. Good luck and if you get answers let me know. Thanks and have a great new year.

Avatar f tn I've tried statins 4 times since my heart attack last May. I was put on Pravastatin in the hospital and immediately started having muscle weakness, joint pain, bladder pain and urgency. This continued until I took myself off of it. Then the pain and urgency went away. I waited 6 weeks to have labs done and my numbers are higher than they should be considering I'm a heart patient. So, back to the statins and the side effects for the 3rd time.
976897 tn?1379171202 It is claimed that the progression is gradual, so the patient doesnt even realise they have a problem half the time, it's only if a family member notices the problem and reports it.
158241 tn?1237723123 Just wondering about the long half life of the riba. The stuff in them is definitely lethal. One is in no way allowed to break them in half or take them if they are damaged. On the Danish insert it even says that if your skin comes in contact with a damaged pill, you should wash the area thoroughly with soap and water. So back to the practical.... If your hemo levels don't go down like crazy, is that always a sign the riba isn't doing it's job?
Avatar n tn and my sgpt alt came to 152 and sgot it danger ..
Avatar f tn I am not sitting around stressing the decisions that I made and I feel that at this point in my life, I am more happy than I have been in ages; partially because I put myself before my job. I appreciate your response, but feel that medically there is something going on here and the only stress that I am feeling is that my concerns, and ultimately my life, are not being taken seriously by the medical professionals. That is spooky stuff.
Avatar n tn Can anyone please help me as I dont really no whats wrong with me as this is very new and I dont really even no what to go and tell the docter apart from the prickly heat, I feel like im not in any control of my body anymore and has affected my life so badly. Any Help as to what might be wrong with me.

Avatar n tn Unfortunately since this happened I have been unable to continue playing soccer or dancing. Currently I live my life around this pain. I only do what I feel I can do because usually exercise equals pain. My advice is this: I can give up my activities for awhile to stay alive for my children. I would hate to think that I had a stroke and either died or ended up in a wheel chair because I couln't take the time to heal myself.
Avatar n tn There's been times where I could hardly finish my shower or using the toilet because the pain was so bad that everytime I tried to finish doing what I needed to do, the pain would come back. Try sitting on the toilet for half an hour so you can finally clean yourself. The doctors are useless. I've had every test there is and they cannot find any issues.
Avatar n tn 5 years at level 3. Anyone want to offer life style specifics? At the time this started for me I worked, standing and walking on unpadded concrete floor for up to 15 a day, 4 times a week. Very similar to the retail job mentioned in the first post. I'm 5'10", 220lbs. Overweight, but morbidly obese. Doctor does not think it's a factor. During the time of the pain I've gone from extremely out of shape, to fairly fit, and back again. No changes. No major weight changes either.
Avatar n tn I have had this problem all my life, but not all the time....sometimes I don't notice them too much because the pain goes away within hours. Recently though, I had one break in my palm under the thumb joint and it turned to a bruise. I work in a nursing home and most of the nurses there have never heard of it. I don't take any meds and have low blood pressure. I do crochet though....???? I always thought it happened to everyone.
211940 tn?1267884866 Your posting is the first I have found that offers anything close to a similar symptom. I am 59, a life time jogger, and have avoided medications at all costs through out my life (because the few times they have been prescribed - 3/4ths of the time they have created worse conditions than the one that led to my taking them in the first place). Thanks for sharing your experiences... perhaps others will post.
