Still struggling to lower your high cholesterol?

When diet and the highest tolerated dose of a statin are not enough, adding PRALUENT® (alirocumab) could make your bad cholesterol PLUNGE.

PRALUENT once-monthly - a new option for patients who prefer the flexibility of monthly dosing*
*The new 300 mg dose of PRALUENT is self-injected every 4 weeks, under the skin (subcutaneously), with 2 separate 150mg pens in a row, at 2 different injection sites.

PRALUENT is different than a statin, and is for adults with uncontrolled bad cholesterol who have heart problems due to plaque build-up in the arteries or who have heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH), an inherited condition that causes high levels of LDL.

  • In clinical studies of patients with heart problems due to plaque in the arteries or with HeFH whose bad (LDL) cholesterol was not at goal despite being on the highest tolerated dose of a statin, adding PRALUENT reduced bad cholesterol an additional 44%-58%, on average.
  • PRALUENT is taken every 2 weeks by self-injection and comes in a pre-filled pen.
  • PRALUENT is covered by the majority of health insurance and Medicare plans.*

So if diet, exercise, and statins haven’t been enough to get your bad cholesterol to where it needs to be, talk to your doctor about adding PRALUENT.

The effect of PRALUENT on heart problems such as heart attacks, stroke, or death is not known.
