Repatha is a medication that is used for people who have heart disease.

The Repatha is a medicine that reduces your risk of having a heart attack or stroke significantly.

Repatha also dramatically lowers LDL bad cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke.

If you're taking a statin, but you are still struggling to lower your LDL then Repatha can help.

Repatha is also known as Evolocumab which is a monoclonal antibody medication designed for the treatment of hyperlipidemia. Evolocumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9.

If you suffer from heart disease, have high cholesterol or have had a heart attack, stroke etc then the medication Repatha can help prevent a future heart attack, stroke and prevent progression of heart disease.

Only take the Repatha as directed by a doctor and don't take more than you're prescribed.
