Brexit / COVID-19 update: Our services are running as normal.
Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
Lescol works in the liver to reduce the level of LDL ('bad cholesterol') produced. Using it can also reduce the number of triglycerides present in the blood, having an overall effect on the blood's lipid content.
Statins have also been known to increase HDL, which is 'good cholesterol'. HDL is considered beneficial because it's cholesterol that is being moved from body cells back to the liver where it can be broken down. Research has shown that with an increase in HDL it also has a suppressing effect on LDL. Another method to increase HDL is regular exercise, which is why it's normally recommended even if a patient is using statins.
Statins are some of the most widely used medications in the world and are considered to be safe to use for most patients who need them, although they'll normally only be recommended when a patient is unable to reduce their cholesterol through a healthy diet and exercise.
This medication should not be used by patients with conditions influencing their kidney or liver health and those who are allergic to the active ingredients in this medication. It's also not advisable to use this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding without speaking to your doctor. Other medications may influence how Lescol works so make sure that you tell your doctor what medications you are taking, especially if the treatments are intended to lower blood lipids or treat an immune deficiency.
This medication should usually be taken once a day, ideally in the evening when the body is most active in producing cholesterol. The lowest dose tends to be prescribed to start off with and may be increased if the desired results were not reached with the lower dose.
When taking Lescol you should not consume large quantities of alcohol or grapefruit as this can influence how the treatment affects the body.
It's usual for side effects to occur as a result of using this treatment and if they do occur they are usually mild. Some of these side effects include headaches, nausea, insomnia and dizziness and are often just the result of the body adjusting to the new treatment or dose you are using.
More serious side effects such as an allergic reaction, which can cause skin itching and swelling, are extremely rare. If they do occur, immediate medical attention should be sought.
