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.
medication for depression & anxiety
Suffering from depression and anxiety can take its toll on your body. Only fellow sufferers can truly understand the consequences. It’s sometimes hard to diagnose if the anxiety stems from depression or depression stems from anxiety. Your depression may be caused by environmental issues like working long hours in a stressful job you hate or it can be part of a more recognized mental health illness.

Doctor’s often prescribe SSRI medications to ease depression but it can take time to find out what medication works best for you. Some people react badly to antidepressants and some find them ineffective so it's wise to consider you family history and possible drug interactions with your doctor before starting new treatment.

Here are the top 5 antidepressants that we sell on IsraelPharm.com. They rank as the most highly prescribed treatments for depression and anxiety disorders in the USA. We take you through the main uses and side effects so you can make an informed decision when consulting with your doctor.
