Drugs
DrugDrug Description
AlirocumabA 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).
AtorvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
Bempedoic acidA drug used in conjunction with lifestyle modification and/or other agents for the treatment of refractory hypercholesterolemia.
BezafibrateA 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.
CholestyramineA 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.
ColesevelamA 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.
ColestipolA bile acid sequestrant used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to reduce LDL-C cholesterol levels in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia.
EvolocumabA 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.
EzetimibeA cholesterol absorption inhibitor used to lower total cholesterol, LDL-C, Apo-B, and non-HDL-C in primary hyperlipidemia and familial cholesterolemia.
FenofibrateA 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.
Fenofibric acidA fibrate used to treat severe hypertriglyceridemia, primary hypercholesterolemia, or mixed dyslipidemia.
FluvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
GemfibrozilA lipid regulator that is used in the reduction of serum triglyceride levels in high-risk patients with hyperlipidemia.
LomitapideA 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.
LovastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and associated conditions, including myocardial infarction and stroke.
MipomersenAn oligonucleotide drug used for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia.
NiacinA B vitamin used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and pellagra.
PitavastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
PravastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction and stroke.
RosuvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
SimvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events including myocardial infarction and stroke.
InclisiranA PCSK9-targeted short interfering RNA that lowers plasma LDL-cholesterol levels.
CerivastatinA statin (or HMG CoA reductase inhibitor) used with dietary changes to decrease lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.
MevastatinNot used therapeutically due to its many side effects.
