I am not entirely sure what you meant by "Will me actor help me it says it's the cure for nf1"... Based on your follow-up comment, I guess you are assuming that you have Type 1 neurofibromatosis (NF1) and Mevacor medication can help you...? I don't have any experience with Mevacor (Lovastatin) in my clinical practice, but read some studies about positive effect of Mevacor re verbal and non-verbal LD in children with NF1. Your family physician or psychiatrist should be able to prescribe the drug, though I would recommend to undergo a psycho-educational assessment before you take any medication for learning disability.
Hope this helps,
