Crestor 40mg

A Reductase Inhibitor can help the body to reduce bad cholesterol, and that is what Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 40 mg is mainly prescribed for. Many patients find that they canít control their cholesterol with diet and exercise alone. This medicine has been widely used though for many health concerns, including heart disease and diabetes in children 10 years of age and older.

What is it Used for?

Not all cholesterol is bad for you, and the body does use good forms of it. The use of this medicine helps to increase good cholesterol levels (HDL). At the same time it reduces the bad cholesterol (LDL) and the amount of Triglycerides in the body. Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 40 mg is often given to patients with very serious health disease issues that have a risk of a heart attack without such assistance. Those with difficulties due to diabetes may find that their health doesnít get worse when they take it.

Dosage & Administration

Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 40 mg is at the highest end of the spectrum, and a patient should never take more than this per day. The lowest dose is 10 mg per day, and that is often what a patient is started with. From there, it may be increased to 20 mg and then to 40 mg. While the risk of side effects is higher at this dose, it may be necessary for the greatest chance of benefits. As the patient gets better with diet and exercise, then the dose may be cut back.

The goal for the patient and the doctor should always be for the dose to be reduced and then eventually the medicine no longer needed. When Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 40 mg is prescribed, it needs to be taken daily with food. Extra intake of water is also recommended to reduce the risk of feeling dehydrated.

This includes those that have thyroid concerns, liver disease, kidney problems, or an allergy to Rosuvastatin.

Be up front with your doctor about all other medicines you take Ė prescription and over the counter. Make sure you tell the doctor about any herbal products you take as well. The goal is to make sure what you are taking wonít adversely interact with Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 40 mg.
