Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Baycol
Answer: There isn't a big difference in any of the drugs available in the class except for potency. That is, the milligrams needed to lower your cholesterol to acceptable levels varies, but the side effects do not seem to. There are occasional patients who experience some different effect but in general the toxicities and potential problems are identical. Lescol and Baycol are similar in potency, Baycol is a little higher-not much. Judge by the effect on lowering your cholesterol. I use them pretty much interchangeably.
