Drug Drug Description Colestipol A bile acid sequestrant used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to reduce LDL-C cholesterol levels in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia. Cerivastatin A statin (or HMG CoA reductase inhibitor) used with dietary changes to decrease lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. Dextrothyroxine A thyroid hormone used to treat hyperlipidemia. Clofibrate A fibric acid derivative used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and high cholesterol. Colesevelam A bile acid sequestrant used to lower LDL-C in adults with hyperlipidemia and pediatric patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, and to improve glycemic control in type 2 diabetes. Fluvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Gemfibrozil A lipid regulator that is used in the reduction of serum triglyceride levels in high-risk patients with hyperlipidemia. Bezafibrate A lipid-lowering fibrate used in the management of primary and secondary hyperlipidaemia, when there is a lack of clinical improvement following lifestyle modifications or correction of the underlying disorder. Cholestyramine A bile acid sequestrant used as an adjunct in the reduction of elevated serum cholesterol in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia, and for the relief of pruritus associated with partial biliary obstruction. Probucol Used to lower LDL and HDL cholesterol. Mipomersen An oligonucleotide drug used for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Lomitapide A microsomal triglyceride transfer protein inhibitor used to lower cholesterol associated with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH), reducing risk of cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Pitavastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Etofibrate Etofibrate is a fibrate produced by the combination of clofibrate ester linked to niacin. These components separate in the body slowly allowing for pharmacokinetics similar to controlled-release formulations. Acipimox A niacin derivative used in Fredrickson type IIb and type IV hyperlipoproteinemia. Ciprofibrate Not Annotated Evolocumab A PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9) inhibitor antibody used as an adjunct to LDL cholesterol reducing therapies, aiding in the prevention of cardiovascular events and cardiovascular revascularization procedures. Tiadenol Not Annotated Nicofuranose Not Annotated Simfibrate Not Annotated Niceritrol Not Annotated Ronifibrate Not Annotated Alipogene tiparvovec Not Annotated Aluminium nicotinate Not Annotated Aluminium clofibrate Not Annotated Clofibride Not Annotated Fenofibric acid A fibrate used to treat severe hypertriglyceridemia, primary hypercholesterolemia, or mixed dyslipidemia. Pravastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction and stroke. Niacin A B vitamin used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and pellagra. Simvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events including myocardial infarction and stroke. Ezetimibe A cholesterol absorption inhibitor used to lower total cholesterol, LDL-C, Apo-B, and non-HDL-C in primary hyperlipidemia and familial cholesterolemia. Fenofibrate A peroxisome proliferator receptor alpha activator used to lower LDL-C, total-C, triglycerides, and Apo B, while increasing HDL-C in hypercholesterolemia, dyslipidemia, and hypertriglyceridemia. Atorvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Rosuvastatin Nicotinyl alcohol A direct-acting peripheral vasodilator that causes flushing and may decrease blood pressure. It is used in vasospasm and threatened gangrene. [PubChem] Meglutol An antilipemic agent which lowers cholesterol, triglycerides, serum beta-lipoproteins and phospholipids. It acts by interfering with the enzymatic steps involved in the conversion of acetate to hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A as... Alirocumab A PCSK9 inhibitor used as an adjunct to manage heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia or clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in patients who require additional lowering of LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C). Bempedoic acid A drug used in conjunction with lifestyle modification and/or other agents for the treatment of refractory hypercholesterolemia.
