    What Is Lescol Used For?


    Lescol belongs to the class of drugs known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor or statins and is used along with medically recommended and carefully supervised diet for the long-term treatment of high cholesterol and other fatty acids in the body. Lescol may also be prescribed by your doctor if you have coronary heart disease and have undergone a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI: a medical procedure on your heart or its blood vessels) to reduce the risk of developing any major heart problems such as loss of heart muscle, heart attack. This medication works by lowering the levels of cholesterol, especially low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in the blood. It reduces the production of cholesterol by the liver and also induces some changes in cholesterol transport and distribution in the blood and tissues. In addition to the medicine and diet, your doctor may also recommend an appropriate exercise regimen for weight control. Lescol is intended for use in children aged 10 years and above.
