Lovastatin (Mevacor®) is a medication approved for treating high cholesterol. It is also licensed to prevent heart disease. By blocking the enzyme that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body, the medicine has been shown to increase HDL ("good cholesterol") and decrease LDL ("bad cholesterol") and triglycerides. Lovastatin, which is available by prescription and comes in tablet form, is generally taken once daily with the evening meal. While most people tolerate lovastatin well, potential side effects include diarrhea, gas, and abdominal pain.
