LEQVIO (inclisiran) is an injectable prescription medicine used along with diet and other lipid-lowering medicines in adults who need additional lowering of “bad” cholesterol (LDL-C) and have known cardiovascular disease and/or heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH), an inherited condition that causes high levels of LDL-C. It is not known if LEQVIO can decrease problems related to high cholesterol, such as heart attacks or stroke.

Infusion Experience

Since LEQVIO is an injection given in-office by a health care provider, there’s no self-injection.

LEQVIO is dosed differently than other injectable LDL-C–lowering therapies.

  • 2 doses per year, together with a statin.
  • Initial dose, again at 3 months, then once every 6 months at your doctor’s office
