Lescol and Joint Pain

If you are taking Lescol and joint pain occurs, there are a number of at-home remedies that can be used to help minimize the pain. People with joint pain often benefit from using over-the-counter pain relief medicines, such as acetaminophen and aspirin. Moist or dry heat placed on the painful area of the joint for about 15 minutes may also help. Cold packs, such as a bag of ice, can also be applied to relieve pain or numb the sore area.

Does Lescol Cause Joint Pain?

Joint pain is a possible side effect of Lescol® (fluvastatin sodium). In clinical studies, up to 2.1 percent of people taking the drug experienced arthritis, and up to 3.2 percent of people experienced some sort of joint problem, but not necessarily arthritis.
 

Joint Pain With Lescol: Suggestions

If you are taking Lescol and joint pain becomes a problem, there are some things that you can try. For example, medications and heat/cold remedies can be used for short-term relief.
 
Medications
People with joint pain often benefit from using over-the-counter pain relief medicines, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol®), aspirin, or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Motrin® or Advil®).
 
Heat/Cold
Moist heat (such as a warm bath or shower) or dry heat (such as a heating pad) placed on the painful area of the joint for about 15 minutes may relieve joint pain. In some cases, cold packs (a bag of ice or frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel) can relieve pain or numb the sore area. If you have poor circulation, do not use cold packs. Water therapy in a heated pool or whirlpool also may relieve joint pain and stiffness.
