<b><font color = "red"> Lescol XL is NOW available</font></b><br>Lescol (Fluvastatin) is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor (also known as a "statin") used to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in your blood. Lescol (Fluvastatin) may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. Lescol (Fluvastatin) may be taken with or without food, preferably in the evening. Lescol (Fluvastatin) should be stored in a tightly sealed container in a dry place away from heat and direct light.
Lescol side effects can cause muscle damage (which can rarely lead to a very serious condition called rhabdomyolysis). Stop taking this drug and tell your doctor immediately if you develop Lescol side effects like muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness (especially with fever or unusual tiredness). Consult your doctor if you are taking cyclosporine, gemfibrozil, niacin, antibiotics, especially erythromycin, or medications for fungal infections because they in combination can lead to Lescol side effects. All of these drugs may increase the risk of myositis (muscle inflammation) when taken with atorvastatin and may lead to kidney failure.
