What is Rosuvastatin?
Rosuvastatin is a generic medication that is clinically proven to be effective and safe for most people who are suffering from high cholesterol. It is part of a group of medications known as statins, which block an enzyme from working in the liver in order to prevent too much cholesterol from being produced. By doing this, statins like Rosuvastatin reduce triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels. High cholesterol patients who are considered to be at high risk of experiencing a heart attack or stroke are often prescribed Rosuvastatin.

What are the benefits of Rosuvastatin?
Rosuvastatin is clinically proven to be a highly effective medication in its ability to reduce cholesterol levels. This lessens the risk of sufferers of high cholesterol experiencing associated problems like heart attack or stroke. This cholesterol medication is suitable for people whose high cholesterol is caused by lifestyle, diet or genetic factors. This medication is designed to be taken daily in the form of a single tablet, meaning it is a very easy course of treatment to follow.
How does it work?
Rosuvastatin calcium, the active ingredient of the medication, prevents the work of an enzyme called HMG-CoA, which works in the liver to produce LDL cholesterol. LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol is known as "bad" cholesterol because in too high quantities it can clog and narrow the arteries. The other type of cholesterol is HDL (high density lipoprotein) which is known as "good" cholesterol because it can prevent this. When a person is referred to as having high cholesterol, this means high levels of the "bad" cholesterol.
How to take Rosuvastatin
This medication takes the form of a tablet which should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. It is up to the individual whether they wish to do this with or without food. One tablet should be taken each day, ideally at around the same time. If it is your first course of treatment using this medication, you will be prescribed either a 5mg or 10mg dose. This may be increased at a later stage depending on your response to the medication. Any increase to your dosage must be recommended by a doctor. It is important to ensure that your cholesterol levels are regularly checked if you are taking medication to lower cholesterol.
