Lescol is used, by adults and children above 10 years of age, to lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels and slow down the build up of plaque in blood vessels.
Certain people suffering from coronary heart disease may also use Lescol to reduce the risk of developing heart complications.
Lescol lowers cholesterol by blocking an enzyme in the liver that is required for the production of cholesterol. Lescol reduces total cholesterol and bad cholesterol, as well as blood triglycerides. LDL cholesterol is thought to be a major cause of coronary heart disease. The slowing down of LDL cholesterol may reverse the progression of coronary artery disease. HDL cholesterol is also increased by Lescol. The increase in HDL cholesterol could slow down coronary artery disease.
Lescol can be taken with or without food once or twice daily.
Do not crush, chew or break a capsule or tablet. It is best to swallow it whole. If you have any questions, consult your doctor.
Extended-release tablets can be taken at any hour of the day.
To ensure that you remember how many times you need to take the tablet or capsule, it is important to take them at the same time every day. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Drink a full glass of water with Lescol.
You may need to have frequent blood tests while taking Lescol.
