Pravastatin is primarily used for the treatment ofdyslipidemia and the prevention of cardiovascular disease.It is recommended to be used only after other measures, such as diet, exercise, and weight reduction, have not improved cholesterol levels.

The evidence for the use of pravastatin is generally weaker than for other statins. The antihypertensive and lipid-lowering treatment to prevent heart attack trial (ALLHAT), failed to demonstrate a difference in all-cause mortality or nonfatal myocardial infarction/fatalcoronary heart disease rates between patients receiving pravastatin 40 mg daily (a common starting dose) and those receiving usual care

Pravastatin has undergone over 112,000 patient-years of double-blind, randomized trials using the 40-mg, once-daily dose and placebos. These trials indicate pravastatin is well tolerated and displays few noncardiovascular abnormalities in patients.[4] However, side effects may occur. A doctor should be consulted if symptoms such as heartburn or headache are severe and do not go away.

These uncommon side effects should be promptly reported to the prescribing doctor or an emergency medical service
