Lescol XL uses

Lescol XL (Fluvastatin)

Lescol XL (Fluvastatin) belongs to the family of statins which is used for the treatment of high cholesterol levels.

Lescol tablets initiate its working by blocking the enzyme in the liver which is a source of making cholesterol. This enzyme is known as hydroxy-methyl glutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase). Statins such as Lescol XL stop the production of this enzyme. Lescol XL is also referred to as an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor.
