Repatha (Evolocumab) is often used in conjunction with statins to help manage cholesterol levels. While Repatha works by inactivating PCSK9 proteins to reduce bad cholesterol, statins work by stopping the body from producing cholesterol and promoting the reabsorption of existing cholesterol. Many patients continue to take statins alongside Repatha, but it's essential to follow your doctor's advice regarding your specific treatment plan.
