Lescol for Lowering Cholesterol Makes Everyday Seem Like Flu Season!
© 2005 - Frank Mangano
Lescol, a drug often prescribed for lowering cholesterol, is frequently accompanied by nasal inflammation, sore throat and even upper respiratory infection. The flu like or allergy symptoms are just some of the most common side effects that go along with this cholesterol lowering drug. It could have you feeling like it is flu season 365 days a year.
Lescol is part of a broader group of statin drugs that are effective in lowering the bad cholesterol called LDL cholesterol. Some statin drugs can also raise HDL cholesterol levels. The HDL cholesterol is the good cholesterol which also helps cleanse the arteries of build up caused by LDL cholesterol. The problem with this drug, whose generic name is fluvastatin sodium, is that there are many undesirable side effects.
In addition to the upper respiratory problems, many people also experience diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, or joint and muscle soreness. Less common side effects include cough, chest congestion and inflamed sinuses.
This particular drug should never be prescribed for lowering cholesterol to anyone who is diabetic, has kidney problems, poor thyroid function or liver disease. Taking Lescol can actually raise cholesterol in individuals with these conditions.
Doctors prescribing Lescol for lowering cholesterol should also stress the importance of a low fat, low cholesterol diet. The drug cannot work on its own without a proper diet. The good news about diet is that it can work without the drugs!
A low cholesterol diet that encompasses the right amount and combination of specific vitamins and minerals can lower cholesterol without medication in an all natural way. The details are outlined in The 60 Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure. Diet specifics and how to supplement diets with vitamins, minerals, herbs and other natural foods are a part of this 2 month program.
