ALLERGIES

Advise your doctor if you have ever had an allergic or unusual reaction to HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. Also tell your doctor if you are allergic to any other substances, such as foods, dyes or preservatives.

SPECIAL DIET

As the first step in lowering your cholesterol, before prescribing medication, your doctor will probably prescribe a diet for you. This diet will be lower in total fat, especially saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol. Often people are able to control their condition if they carefully follow their doctor's orders for proper diet and exercise. Medication is only prescribed when additional help is needed and is only effective when diet and exercise regimens are properly followed.

Also, these drugs are less effective if you are greatly overweight. It may be necessary for you to go on a reducing diet. But check with your doctor before going on any kind of diet.

CHILDREN

Studies on HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors have only been done in adult patients. There is no specific information comparing their use in children with use in other age groups. However, lovastatin, atorvastatin, and simvastatin (Zocor) have been used in a limited number of children under the age of 18. Early results seem to show that these medicines may be effective in children. However, their long-term safety has not been studied.
