What is Nexletol?

Nexletol is an oral medication with the active ingredient bempedoic acid indicated in the treatment of high LDL-cholesterol. High LDL-cholesterol can build up in the walls of blood vessels and lead to serious heart problems such as heart attack or stroke. Nexletol can be purchased at a cheaper price online at NorthWestPharmacy.com.

What is Nexletol used for?

Nexletol is used to lower LDL-cholesterol along with diet and maximally tolerated statin therapy. Nexletol is used in people with familial hypercholesterolemia (a genetic condition leading to high cholesterol) or established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (a condition in which arteries become clogged). Nexletol works by blocking an enzyme called adenosine triphosphate-citrate lyase (ACL), which plays a role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. By blocking this enzyme, Nexletol reduces the production of LDL-cholesterol.

What are the side effects of Nexletol?

The main serious side effects of Nexletol are high uric acid levels, which can lead to gout and tendon rupture. Tendon rupture is rare, but more likely to occur in patients over 60, in those taking corticosteroid or fluoroquinolone drugs (ie. ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin), in patients with poor kidney function, and in patients with previous tendon issues. You should contact your prescriber immediately if you develop symptoms of tendinitis or tendon rupture. Other side effects that may occur include upper respiratory tract infections, muscle spasms, back pain, abdominal pain, bronchitis, low hemoglobin levels, or elevated liver enzymes.

What you should know before using Nexletol?

The dose of Nexletol is 180 mg once daily by mouth. Nexletol comes as a 180 mg tablet. Nexletol can be taken with or without food. Your prescriber may check your lipid levels within a few months of starting Nexletol. Pregnant patients should talk to their prescribers before taking Nexletol. Patients with severe kidney or liver dysfunction should not take Nexletol. Nexletol has not been studied in children. You should not take Nexletol with more than 20mg of simvastatin or 40mg of pravastatin.
