What is Mevacor (lovastatin)?
Lovastatin is a cholesterol-lowering medication that blocks the production of cholesterol (a type of fat) in the body.
Lovastatin reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and total cholesterol in the blood. Lowering your cholesterol can help prevent heart disease and hardening of the arteries, conditions that can lead to heart attack, stroke, and vascular disease. Lovastatin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
