Fluvastatin belongs to the family of medications known as cholesterol-lowering drugs. It is used in addition to diet and exercise to treat adults with High Cholesterol levels and children aged 10 years and older who have been diagnosed with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. It is also recommended for people who have had heart procedures such as angioplasty to help prevent complications after surgery, including heart attacks and death.

Sandoz Fluvastatin works by blocking an enzyme needed to make cholesterol in the liver (HMG-CoA reductase). The result is that less cholesterol is made and levels of cholesterol in the blood are decreased. Reduction of cholesterol levels in the blood has been shown to reduce the risks associated with heart disease, such as Heart Attack.

Sandoz Fluvastatin usually takes 4 weeks to have a significant effect on the cholesterol level in your blood. After this time, your doctor will likely send you for a lab test to check for changes in your cholesterol levels.

Sandoz Fluvastatin may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Sandoz Fluvastatin may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
