Crestor is part of a group of medicines called statins, which work to reduce high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Crestor tablets are available in 5mg, 10mg, 20mg and 40mg doses.
High cholesterol levels in the blood occur when the body makes too much cholesterol, which is a type of fat produced in the liver from the fatty foods we eat. If left untreated, high cholesterol levels can cause a blockage in the blood vessels, increasing the risk of circulatory problems like heart diseases and stroke.
To avoid raising cholesterol, it's important to eat a balanced diet and make conscious decisions on the kinds of foods you eat. Consuming more foods rich in HDL cholesterol, such as fish, nuts and fibrous foods like whole grains, can help to reduce the amount of cholesterol in your blood.
Moderate physical activity, such as running, can help to lower your cholesterol levels.
There are two types of cholesterol produced by the liver - LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’ and HDL or ‘good cholesterol’. The build-up of ‘bad cholesterol’ in the blood vessels can increase your risk of having heart and circulatory problems.
Rosuvastatin, the active ingredient in Crestor, works by inhibiting an enzyme in the liver that produces LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’, thus, reducing your risk of developing heart problems.
The typical prescribed dose for Crestor is to swallow 1 tablet whole with a glass of water each day. Crestor tablets can be taken with or without food. It is advisable to take Crestor at the same time each day.
Your age, ethnicity, weight and if you already have heart or kidney problems, are some factors that would determine your starting dose of Crestor.
The starting dose of Crestor is usually 5 mg or 10 mg, but your doctor will check your cholesterol levels regularly and increase the dose if needed, to ensure your cholesterol is at the right level. Usually, you will need to continue taking cholesterol lowering drugs for life, to ensure that your cholesterol levels don't creep back up over time.
You should always read the patient information leaflet which comes enclosed with your medicine. This leaflet contains crucial information about taking Crestor safely and what to do in the event that you experience side effects.
Your doctor may prescribe Crestor alongside a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, such as Ezetimibe.
If you experience any side effects, report them to your doctor.
Always store medicine out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
If you forget to take Crestor at your usual time, it shouldn’t be a problem. You can just take the next dose as planned the following day. Do not take more than one dose to make up for the missed one.
If you have taken more than one dose of Crestor mistakenly, contact your doctor or the closest hospital for advice.
You can drink within the normal units of alcohol (14 units weekly) while taking Crestor, but you should avoid drinking too much as it may cause damage to your liver over time, especially if you are on a high dose of Crestor (above 40mg).
While most people have no problems using tools or driving when taking Crestor, some people have reported feeling dizzy when on Crestor treatment. If you experience symptoms of dizziness during your treatment, contact your doctor before you resume driving or working with machinery.
