How does Lescol work?
Lescol belongs to a group of drugs called statins. Like other statins the medication helps reduce the levels of cholesterol in the body. Cholesterol and triglycerides are both types of lipids and when their levels get too high; the patient suffers from various heart related ailments.
Fluvastatin, which is an active ingredient in the drug, reduces the levels of lipids in our blood. Lipids are the reason for excess amounts of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) in the body which blocks the arteries and increases the chance of heart ailments.
