is the trade name of an oral drug cerivastatin. In 1990 by A.G. a pharmaceutical company first marketed Cerivastatin in competition to Pfizer’s atrovastin. It was initially approved in the U.S in 1997; however, later rhabdomyolysis was reported as the fatal side effect of the drug, and by 2001, this medicine was withdrawn from all over the world.

Baycol is basically used to bring down the blood cholesterol levels. It belongs to the class of satins that lower the bad cholesterol levels, triglycerides- which is another type of fat and apolipoprotien B thereby preventing heart diseases. It does this by increasing the production of good cholesterol called high density lipoproteins (HDL). Increased HDL in turn helps in controlling the hardening of arteries which can lead to either heart attacks or cardiac arrests or heart failure or any other heart ailment. Thus baycol lowers the risk of artery clogging by decreasing the content of low density lipoproteins or the bad cholesterol and increasing high density lipoproteins or good cholesterol.
