Talking with your health care provider

You can play an active role in your health care by talking openly and honestly with your health care provider

This can help you both make smart choices about your health. Before your appointment, it's important to gather your family's medical history, as well as information about any cardiovascular-related events. It's also important to gather all current prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you are taking.


In the meantime, here are some examples of questions you can ask your health care provider to help make the most of your appointment:

  1. Is LEQVIO right for me?

  2. How can LEQVIO help lower my cholesterol?

  3. What are the side effects?

  4. How does LEQVIO work with statins?

  5. How is LEQVIO dosing different from other cholesterol-lowering treatments?

Prepare for your appointment with additional questions to ask your health care provider
