Canadian Drug Probucol Used to Lower Cholesterol

Drug manufacturers around the world are always looking for the best medication to help lower cholesterol. In Canada, those with high cholesterol levels are often prescribed Probucol. It is also sold under the brand name Lorelco, but is basically an antihyperlipidemic, which means it combats high levels of lipids (fats) in the blood.

All cholesterol lowering drugs run the risk of side effects and Probucol is no exception. The more common side effects are bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting. Those taking Prbucol also commonly report dizziness and fainting as well as a fast or irregular heartbeat. In rare cases there have been reports of swelling in the face, hands, or feet. Sometimes there can be unusual bleeding and bruising or numbness and tingling in the fingers, toes, or face.

Those with a heart condition are advised to avoid Probucol. However, research conducted in the last decade has shown that it can be useful in reversing the effects of some heart conditions in addition to lowering cholesterol. Mostly, the research indicates that Probucol can reduce the severity of myocardial injury in those with high cholesterol.

When high cholesterol levels are allowed to go unregulated, patients run the risk of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. The waxy cholesterol adheres to the sides of the arteries making them lose their elasticity and causing blockages that reduce vital blood flow to various organs. A complete blockage can result in stroke or heart attack. It is possible to lower cholesterol without prescription drugs and their undesirable side effects. Diet and exercise can show immediate results and permanent changes can be seen in as little as two months. To learn more, refer to the plan found in The 60-Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure.
