Table of contents:

Nexletol is a brand name for bempedoic acid, a medication used to help lower "bad" cholesterol (LDL) in the blood. It is used as an adjunct to diet and is typically prescribed for adults with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a condition in which people have elevated levels of LDL cholesterol due to genetic factors. It works by reducing the production of cholesterol in the liver. Nexletol is available by prescription and may have side effects, such as muscle pain, increased risk of tendon rupture, and allergic reactions.

Uses and Dosage

Nexletol comes as a tablet and should be taken orally, with or without food as per your doctor's guidance, typically once a day. Take the tablet routinely to get the maximum advantage from it, and make sure to use it at the same time every day. Even if you feel better, continue taking the tablet since most people with high cholesterol do not experience any symptoms. Additionally, follow your doctor's instructions regarding diet and exercise. It may take up to 12 weeks for the medication to show its full effect.

Therefore, take Nexletol as directed by your doctor, once daily with or without food, and consistently at the same time each day. Do not discontinue it without your doctor's permission since high cholesterol patients usually do not experience symptoms. Keep following your diet and exercise plan and be patient as the medication may take time to show its effect, up to 12 weeks.
