Lescol Uses & Indications
Cyclosporine and fluconazole (Diflucan) increase blood levels of fluvastatin. Therefore, the dose of fluvastatin should be limited to 20 mg twice daily when patients are also taking cyclosporine or fluconazole.

Gemfibrozil should not be combined with fluvastatin due to increased risk of muscle-related side effects when the two drugs are combined.

Combining fluvastatin with colchicine (Colcrys) or one gram or larger doses of niacin also increases the risk of muscle-related side effects.

Fluvastatin increases the effect of warfarin (Coumadin). Patients taking warfarin should be monitored carefully for toxic effects of warfarin.
Lescol Side Effects
Minor side effects include constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, gas, heartburn, headache, insomnia, and joint pains. Major side effects include abdominal pain or cramps, blurred vision, dizziness, easy bruising or bleeding, itching, muscle pain or cramps, rash, and yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Inflammation of the muscles caused by statins can lead to a serious breakdown of muscle cells called rhabdomyolysis. Rhabdomyolysis causes the release of muscle protein (myoglobin) into the blood. Myoglobin can cause kidney failure and even death. When used alone, statins cause rhabdomyolysis in less than one percent of patients. To prevent the development of rhabdomyolysis, patients taking fluvastatin should contact their health care professional immediately if they develop unexplained muscle pain, weakness, or muscle tenderness.

Statins may cause liver damage although serious liver damage is rare. Blood liver tests should be performed at the beginning of treatment and as needed thereafter to detect liver injury.

Statins have been associated with increases in HbA1c and fasting serum glucose levels.

There are also post-marketing reports of memory loss, forgetfulness, amnesia, confusion, and memory impairment. Symptoms may start one day to years after starting treatment and resolve within a median of three weeks after stopping the statin.
Personal Prescription Drugs
There are many pros and cons about purchasing prescription drugs online according to an article written by the National Legislative Association on Prescription Drug Prices. Consumers who are paying high prices for prescription drugs are urged to read this post. There are many things happening online with prescription drug prices. Take a look at how prescription drug prices can be more affordable when purchased online.

Prescription drugs purchased from international pharmacies are generally up to 85% cheaper than the exact same product purchased in the United States. Countries such as New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Israel have all kept prescription drug prices low while prices in the United States have continued to rise year after year.

Rising drug prices in the United States affect mostly name brand drugs that cannot be purchased as generic. Pharmaceutical companies hold the patent on these particular drugs for a set period of time. It is until that patent protection time expires that prescription drugs become available as generic. Abilify was a name brand example that was used in the article by the National Legislative Association on Drug Prices. This particular medication in the United States will cost on average $9,000 more than in other countries. It only makes sense to purchase the exact same product at a cheaper price in another market. This practice is known as arbitrage and used every day to purchase other commodities. It only makes sense to go with the cheaper market if one is cheaper than the other. The internet allows consumers the ability to go to other countries where prices are cheaper and more affordable for the exact same product.
