Were you looking for information about Mevacor? Mevicor is a common misspelling of Mevacor.
Mevacor® (lovastatin) is a prescription drug licensed to treat a number of conditions related to heart disease, such as high cholesterol. The medicine, which is available in tablet form, works by blocking a particular enzyme that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body. It should be taken with the evening meal -- taking it on an empty stomach can cause increased drug levels in your blood.
Like most medications, Mevacor could cause side effects, and some people should not take this product. In order for your healthcare provider to determine if this is the best treatment option for your condition, he or she needs a complete list of all drugs you are taking (including vitamins and supplements) and any other medical conditions you have (such as liver or kidney disease).
