Ideally No: Lescol (fluvastatin) is used for high cholesterol. There have been reports of fetal abnormalities and it isn't recommended. Ideally we can get you off of Lescol (fluvastatin) before your pregnancy. Talk to your doctor right away if you are takiing Lescol (fluvastatin) and think you are pregnant.
