Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Plasma half life of Livazo is 12 hours.

So it will take about 3 days to be completely out of the system.

You can read this link on it.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.

hello, as i mentioned in my question, i need the washout period, ie the time at which all body parameters affected by the specific medicine return to baseline. In a research it was mentioned that for monkeys and only for kinetic parameters this is supposed to be 2 weeks. therefore, I don't want the time at which the specific dose of the medicine is no longer active.Moreover, i want to tell you that my card was charged twice for the specific answer above, which was not the answer to my question.

comment: For the evaluation of recovery, we administered pitavastatin orally 2 weeks after the treatment with CsA and found that the pharmacokinetic parameters of pitavastatin returned to near baseline levelslink:
comment:If participants have taken cholesterol lowering drug, they will have wash-out period at least 4weeks.

The study showed drug interaction. 2 medicines were added along with pitavastatin. Those inhibited the clearance of pitavastatin by liver cells thus prolonging wash out.
