What is Lescol?

Lescol is the brand name of a high cholesterol medication that contains the active ingredient fluvastatin sodium. This medication belongs to a group of medications known as statins, which reduce cholesterol by affecting the operation of an enzyme responsible for cholesterol production.

The generic version of this medication is known as Fluvastatin. This medication is clinically proven to lower cholesterol and reduce sufferers' risk of experiencing potentially fatal cardiovascular complications that can be brought on by high cholesterol.

How does Lescol work?

Cholesterol is commonly divided into two types: low density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) and high density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol). The former, LDL cholesterol, is referred to as "bad" cholesterol, while HDL cholesterol is known as "good" cholesterol. This is because LDL cholesterol can clog up the arteries and cause them to narrow, leading to conditions like atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

Lescol, like other statins, targets the production of LDL cholesterol by hindering the work of an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase. This means that there is less LDL cholesterol in the body to cause problems[1].

Category Total-C (mg/dL) LDL-C (mg/dL)
Acceptable <170 <110
Borderline 170-199 110-129
High ≥ 200 ≥ 130

What are the benefits of Lescol?

This medication is clinically proven to lower cholesterol and in turn prevent heart disease and serious cardiovascular problems, like heart attacks and strokes. Lescol can not only reduce LDL cholesterol levels, but also increase production of the "good" HDL cholesterol. It can also lower harmful triglyceride levels in the blood. The fact that the medication is available in the form of a capsule means it is very easy to take daily as prescribed.

How do I take Lescol tablets?

It is usually advised that a patient takes their Lescol dosage in the evening or before they go to bed. The capsules should be swallowed whole with the aid of a glass of water, but it is up to you whether you wish to take the capsules with food or not.

You may require a higher or lower dose depending on how you respond to the treatment, but this can only be decided by a medical professional.

What side effects occur when taking Lescol tablets?

  • Stomach pain
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Headaches

Skin reactions and muscle pain/weakness are considered to be rare. Inflammation of the pancreas, liver, or blood vessels is considered very rare. Some people using statin medication have reported the following side effects:

  • Depression
  • Sexual issues
  • Sleep problems
  • Memory loss[2]
