This is a cholesterol-lowering medication that is taken orally.. Fluvastatin belongs to a class of drugs called HMG- CoA reductase inhibitors, regularly referred to as "statins."
Statins lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood by inhibiting an enzyme in the liver that is required when producing cholesterol. In the blood, statins lower the amount of bad cholesterol as well as triglycerides. In many cases, bad cholesterol and triglycerides can be the cause of coronary artery disease. Coronary disease can be slowed down or even reversed in some cases by lowering the cholesterol levels in the blood.
Most people who have high levels of cholesterol are not aware of the fact, as it shows no outward symptoms. However the potential risks can be very serious so it is important to treat the problem as fast and effectively as possible. In some cases, changing your diet and doing regular exercise can improve your cholesterol levels. However, some people may also need to take medication, in which case you can buy Fluvastatin to help improve the condition and increase life expectancy.
This medication works in a similar way to most statins, which are a type of medication used to lower cholesterol. In the body, it blocks an enzyme known as HMG-CoA, which helps to produce “bad” cholesterol (LDL). This prevents a build up of lipids in the arteries, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke, as it puts pressure on the heart by making it harder for the blood to flow through the body.
Most people who suffer from high levels of LDL can safely buy Fluvastatin to reduce cholesterol levels, although it is not advised for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Similarly, you will not be prescribed the medication if you have had liver problems in the past or if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. During your online consultation, be sure to mention any other medical conditions you are suffering from such as liver, kidney or muscle disease, as it may affect your dosage.
Your doctor will prescribe the appropriate dosage for you, which may range from 20mg to 80mg. You can buy Fluvastatin in the form of tablets. This medicine should not be taken with grapefruits, as statins and grapefruit can have adverse effects when they are combined in the body.
Your dosage may be reviewed regularly by your doctor. You should not increase your daily dose without first consulting with your doctor. If you miss a dose, do not take double the amount the next day, as excessive amounts of the medication can be dangerous.
As with all medications, Fluvastatin can cause side effects in some patients. The most common side effects include trouble sleeping, headaches, abdominal pains and nausea, although some of the rare ones can include memory loss, sexual difficulties and depression. Consult a doctor immediately if you experience any of the following: unexplained muscle pain, skin reactions, trouble breathing or any yellowness of the skin or eyes.
Headaches are a fairly common side effect of this medication, and sleeping difficulties may also occur. Behavioural changes are extremely rare.Gastric
Abdominal pain and general stomach discomfort is a common side effect, often accompanied by nausea. Indigestion may also occur. Abdominal pain that is unusually severe could be a sign of pancreatic difficulties and as such is a cause for concern that should be reported to a doctor.Skin
Skin reactions, including itchiness or a rash, are rare, as is skin inflammation.Muscular
Muscle pain, tenderness or weakness is rare but could occur as a result of this medication.
Sleeping problems, stomach discomfort, headaches, nausea and abdominal pain are side effects that occur most often. They aren't likely to be serious, but you should tell your doctor if you experience them as they may be an indication that you require a different dose or even a different statin, that will be less likely to interact negatively in your body.
