CRESTOR (ROSUVASTATIN)

Crestor Description

Crestor is classified as a “statin” medication; it is prescribed to lower high cholesterol levels. Crestor works by blocking the body’s cholesterol-producing enzymes, otherwise known as HMG CoA reductase enzymes. You will receive Crestor in pill form, and it should be taken according to your doctor’s instructions. You can also buy Crestor by its generic name, Rosuvastatin. A valid prescription is required if you want to take Crestor. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Crestor

Crestor is prescribed to treat high or unhealthy cholesterol levels, as these may lead to dangerous cardiovascular problems like heart attack or stroke. It does so by increasing stores of “good” HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol, while simultaneously decreasing “bad” LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol and triglycerides.

Triglycerides are a kind of fat. Rosuvastatin blocks the activity of a liver enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase. Because this enzyme is involved in LDL production, the blockage of HMG-CoA reductase reduces the amount of cholesterol in the liver cells, which prompts those cells to draw LDL from the blood. This leads to reduced cholesterol levels. Crestor also slows the accumulation of plaque on the arteries and reduces triglyceride production in the blood.

Crestor is also prescribed to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other heart complications in certain people with diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors. It may be prescribed for children aged 10 to 17 years who have inherited cholesterol disorders. You may also be instructed to make lifestyle changes such as increasing physical activity and limiting foods with saturated fats.

Before You Take Crestor

Before you start taking Crestor or Rosuvastatin, you should inform your doctor if you have kidney disease, diabetes, or thyroid problems. You should tell your doctor about your alcohol consumption habits, especially if you drink more than two alcoholic beverages a day, as well as if you are of Asian descent. People of Asian descent may absorb Crestor at a higher rate than other people.

Warnings for Crestor

It is important that you avoid alcoholic drinks and high-fat or high-cholesterol foods while taking Crestor to prevent negative interactions and reactions. Certain medications should also be avoided, including blood thinners, anti-fungal drugs, and HIV or AIDS medications. You should only take these if instructed by your doctor. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb Crestor.

Crestor should not be taken if you are pregnant, as it may cause birth defects. You should stop taking Crestor and consult your physician immediately if you become pregnant while taking Crestor.

How Much Does Crestor Cost?

How much you pay for Crestor (Rosuvastatin) differs according to several variables.

The first is whether you decide to purchase brand name Crestor or generic Rosuvastatin. Brand name drugs tend to cost more, while generic drugs are less expensive. There are some differences between generic Rosuvastatin and brand name Crestor, though the active medicinal ingredient is the same; non-active ingredients or formulations may vary between generic and brand name drugs.

The second variable is where you decide to buy Crestor. You have the option to purchase brand name Crestor or generic Rosuvastatin online at NorthWestPharmacy.com. A quick price comparison reveals huge savings when you choose to buy generic Crestor rather than the brand name product.
