This medication may be used to lower the amount of ‘bad cholesterol’ (low density lipoprotein or LDL-cholesterol) in the body. It may also help increase the amount of ‘good cholesterol’ (high density lipoprotein or HDL cholesterol). High ‘bad cholesterol’ levels can cause your blood vessels to clog up and increase the risk for chest pain (angina), heart attack or stroke. Hence, this medication can help reduce your risk for heart attack and stroke.
