Lescol reduces bad LDL cholesterol--and increases good HDL cholesterol--in the blood and can lower your chances of developing clogged arteries and heart disease. It is also prescribed to slow the accumulation of plaque in the arteries of people who already have coronary heart disease and may be prescribed for you when you are released from the hospital after a heart attack. Your doctor will prescribe the drug only if you have been unable to reduce your blood cholesterol level sufficiently with a low-fat low-cholesterol diet alone.

Your doctor will put you on a cholesterol-lowering diet before starting treatment with Lescol. You should continue on this diet while you are taking Lescol.

* Grapefruit juice or grapefruits should not be consumed while on this medication as increased side effects may result.

ADULTS

After 4 weeks of therapy with Lescol your doctor will check your cholesterol level and adjust your dosage if necessary.
