(1 customer review)

Fluvastatin, commonly known in the market as Lescol, Canef, and Vastin is a drug that is part of the statin class of drugs. Like other statins, Fluvastatin is used to cure hypercholesterolemia or high cholesterol levels in the blood and to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, it has also been observed that Fluvastatin exhibits antiviral activity against Hepatitis C.
 
Through taking statins such as Fluvastatin, low density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol is minimized by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase in the liver tissue, which is responsible for the production of cholesterol. Fluvastatin also helps in promoting the production of high density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol in the body.

How does Fluvastatin work?

Like other statins, Fluvastatin works by treating high levels of cholesterol in the body. Through regular intake of statins such as Fluvastatin, low density lipoprotein (LDL) commonly known as bad cholesterol is minimized by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase
in the liver tissue, which is responsible for the production of cholesterol. Fluvastatin also helps in promoting the production of high density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol in the body.

As you know, too much cholesterol is not good for your health; especially when there is too much LDL in the blood system. When this happens, the risk for cardiovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease is high. Also, clotting in the coronary arteries may lead to angina or a heart attack. Hence, with the help of Fluvastatin, along with proper diet, regular exercise, and weight managemwnt, threats like these can be avoided.

How do I take Fluvastatin?

At the start of the treatment, Fluvastatin is usually given at a low dose and then gradually changes depending on the result of the first few treatments. It can be administered to patients orally before or after meals. Keep in mind that only a single dose of Fluvastatin should be taken in a day. This means that taking 2 low doses of this medication twice in a day to substitute one high dose treatment is prohibited.

Once you experience these side effects, immediately stop taking Fluvastatin and consult your doctor as soon as possible in order to avoid greater risk.

    Lescol lowered my LDL cholesterol from 270 to 101, but my HDL remains at only 36. I am a 63 year old male . My doctor recently prescribed Simcor, a combination of Zocor and Niacin 500/20 , to try and raise the HDL. During tests over the last 8 years on Lescol my HDL has been anywhere from the present 36 to 40. My liver enzymes have been slightly high, but evidently not enough to concern my doctor. I have no muscle pain or weakness, but am also on blood pressure medicines, which make me feel tired and lethargic. Since I have depleted the types of BP medicines, I assume I will just have to live with it. Exercise helps this tiredness, but a bad back and nerves in my lower back and hip prevent much exercise.
