What Is The Difference Between Pravastatin 40mg And Pravastatin Sodium 40mg?

Originally I was on Pravastatin and now I am on Pravastatin Sodium. Why would the Dr. change it?

Answer

Hi Patient,

Your pharmacist would be a good resource to explain the difference between these two medications. I recommend discussing with your physician to determine the reason for the medication change.

All the best,
