Results with PRALUENT® (alirocumab)

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

  • In clinical studies, PRALUENT reduced bad (LDL) cholesterol an additional 44%-58% on average

  • PRALUENT, a breakthrough treatment, 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 bad cholesterol

  • Most people saw results in as little as 4 weeks

Talk to your doctor about adding PRALUENT. It works differently than statins.

What to expect with PRALUENT

A unique problem with cholesterol is that you can’t feel it—so, you won’t be able to feel PRALUENT lowering your bad cholesterol. After starting PRALUENT, talk to your healthcare provider about a follow-up blood test to see where your LDL level stands.

What you should know about PRALUENT

PRALUENT was generally well tolerated in 9 clinical trials and in over 2,000 patients.

  • When added to the highest tolerated statin dose, PRALUENT has been shown to be safe and effective in patients with atherosclerotic heart problems or heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (an inherited condition that causes high levels of bad cholesterol), who need additional lowering of bad cholesterol

  • The most common side effects of PRALUENT include: redness, itching, swelling, or pain/tenderness at the injection site; symptoms of the common cold, and flu or flu-like symptoms. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away
