Lescol XL (Fluvastatin) is used in combination with a proper diet to lower "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and fats such as triglycerides while raising "good" cholesterol (HDL) levels in the blood.

It belongs to a group of drugs known as "statins" which work by reducing the amount of cholesterol produced by the liver.

Lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as raising HDL cholesterol, can help decrease the risk of heart disease and prevent strokes and heart attacks.
