The importance of sticking with your LIVALO
Because high cholesterol doesn’t have any symptoms, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to tell on your own how well LIVALO is working. That’s why it’s important to keep taking your LIVALO as prescribed, even if you don’t see or feel any difference. If you stop taking LIVALO, it’s likely your cholesterol levels will go back up, putting you at increased risk for a heart attack or stroke.
Be sure to schedule regular visits with your doctor and have your cholesterol checked with a simple blood test.
Tips to remember to take your LIVALO every day
It’s important to take your LIVALO daily at around the same time of day or night, without missing a dose. Once you get in the habit of taking LIVALO, it gets easier to remember! Here are a few ways to get used to taking it:
Sign up for LIVALO text reminders.
You can get reminders to take your LIVALO, as well as reminders to refill your LIVALO prescription, texted right to your phone
Make it part of your daily routine!
Take your LIVALO at the same time each day along with other daily activities, like brushing your teeth
Use a pill box.
You can get pill boxes that are divided into separate sections for each day of the week and even for each time of day
Leave reminder notes.
Strategically placed sticky notes are simple and easy ways to remember
Setting alarms on your cell phone, computer, or watch can be a good way to keep track of when you should take your LIVALO (and other medicines too). Or download an app to help you remember—learn more about a few highly rated popular medication reminder apps
Try the buddy system.
If you have a family member or friend who also takes their medicine around the same time, it can help to remind each other about it and/or plan to take your medications at the same time
Keep your LIVALO where you’ll see it.
Whether it's on your nightstand, the kitchen table (maybe by your salt and pepper shakers), or your computer desk, you’re more likely to remember to take your LIVALO if it’s visible. However, make sure to also follow proper storage instructions for LIVALO
Use a medicine calendar.
Every time you take your LIVALO, note it on your calendar. That way you’ll never have to ask yourself “Did I take my LIVALO?”
Keep an extra LIVALO dose with you.
Ever rush out of the house without taking your medicine? Having a LIVALO dose in your purse, backpack, briefcase, or desk drawer at work can allow you to take it later if you realize you forgot
Make it a fun challenge.
Set simple, clear goals and reward yourself when you meet them. For instance, if you take your LIVALO on time every day for a week, treat yourself to something you want—like seeing a movie, downloading some new music, or taking a break to do something else you enjoy
