1 doctor agrees
In brief: Fluvastatin
Lescol (fluvastatin) is a "statin" anti-cholesterol product, and I have no basis for believing it would cause thrush/candidiasis.
Usually occurs in infants, immunocompromised, or those just off antibiotics. Requires an rx for monistat, nizoral, ketoconazole to eliminate.
