    • Also, an Inc in Hepatic LDL receptors

    take drug at night b/c most chol production is done at night

    create risk for liver failure and muscle breakdown

    • check thyroid imbalances
    • check Vit. D status

    Niacin= slow release form
  36. Cholestyramine / Questran
    Bile Acid Sequestrant

    • Binds with bile acids in gut to prevent reabsorption
    • Dec. bile acid creates demand for more production
    • Choilesterol is used to make bile acids, so liver creates more LDL receptors

    SE= constipation, indigetion, nausea (with food)

    Dec uptake of fat soluble drugs, so take Coumadin 1 hr before Questran
  37. Colesevelam / WelChol
    • new Bile Acid Sequestrant
    • 2nd gen
    • Better tolerated, less constipation and nausea
    • does NOT afftect fat soluble drugs/vit.s
    • $$$
  38. Ezetimibe / Zetia
    • Cholesterol Absorption Blocking
    • Block absoption in sm. intestine
    • Affects dietary and cholesterol secreted in bile (which is often reabsorbed)
    • well tolerated, careful in liver failure
  39. Gemfibrozil / Lopid

    Fenofibrate / Tricor
