What is Crestor?

Crestor, also known by its generic name rosuvastatin, is a drug administered orally and prescribed for lowering blood cholesterol levels in the body. Crestor always reduces the risk of strokes and heart diseases in people having diabetes and other risk factors such as coronary heart disease.

It hails from a class of drugs called statins, which also include Lipitor (atorvastatin),Mevacor(lovastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Lescol (fluvastatin), and Pravachol (pravastatin). Like all other statins, Crestorinhibits the production of cholesterol in the liver.

Crestor can even pass on in the breast milk to the child. Hence, one should never breast feed while taking Crestor.

Crestorneeds to be stored at around room temperature, usually between 2-25º C (36-77º F).

What Should I Know Before Taking Crestor?

One needs to take a few precautions and be clear on all the aspects of Crestor before taking it. The following are the essential things one needs to know about Crestor in order to make the treatment absolutely safe and as side effect free as possible.

People with any history of liver disease or renal failure need to consult their doctor before taking Crestor.

Hence, they need to check with their doctor if it is ok for them to start taking Crestor. Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant or are planning to be pregnant before taking Crestor. Crestor can harm the unborn child as well as the mother.

Ingredients

The main active ingredient in Lipitor is rosuvastatin. This is a HMG CoA reductase inhibitor, which works by blocking the enzyme responsible for producing cholesterol in the liver, thereby stopping cholesterol production and lowering its blood levels.

How it Works

Crestor belongs to a class of drugs known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or statins. Statins basically reduce the levels of "bad" cholesterol i.e. low-density lipoprotein(LDL) as well as triglycerides, while increasing the blood levels of good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in the body. Crestor blocks the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, thereby inhibiting the production of cholesterol in the liver.

Dosage

Crestor tablets are available in 5, 10, 20, and 40 mg dosages. The starting dose is usually 5 mg daily and can be increased to 40 mg, depending on the patient’s response. Asian people absorb rosuvastatin much quicker and hence, they need to be given lower dosages. It is taken once daily, at any time of the day, both with and without food.

Interactions

There are certain drugs that interact with Crestor and lead to harmful consequences for the patient. Hence, one needs to be clear about what other drugs should not be taken with Crestor in order to avoid doing any harm to oneself.
