The American College of Cardiology created “My Plan For Starting a PCSK9 Inhibitor” to help you track changes to your LDL-C levels, know what questions to ask, and what to expect when getting started on a PCSK9 inhibitor.
The tool also will help you:
- Share your goals for treatment
- Understand why this medication is being prescribed
- Review how it fits with your other medications
- Know what to expect (for example, the preapproval process, that the medication is given as an injection under your skin either once monthly or every two weeks, cost, etc.)
