What is Crestor?

Crestor is an effective high cholesterol medication that is clinically proven to help to lower cholesterol and the branded version of the generic medication and active ingredient rosuvastatin. This medication is part of a group of medicines known as statins, which work to reduce cholesterol by blocking a particular enzyme. Crestor is highly tolerable and available in a range of doses meaning it can be prescribed to patients with high cholesterol who are at risk of heart attack and stroke.

Crestor can start to reduce cholesterol in as little as 2-4 weeks, and when combined with healthy dietary changes, can lower LDL cholesterol by up to 55%.

Structural formula of Rosuvastatin

How does Crestor work?

The active ingredient, rosuvastatin calcium, works to reduce levels of cholesterol that are produced by the liver. You may have heard of cholesterol being divided into two types: "bad" (low density lipoprotein or LDL) and "good" (high density lipoprotein or HDL) cholesterol.

LDL is "bad" because it can clog up and narrow the arteries, increasing the risk of cardiovascular problems like heart attacks, which HDL protects against this. Crestor works in fours separate ways to reduce the bad cholesterol and blocking the enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which is responsible for producing LDL.

  • Lowering LDL 'bad' cholesterol
  • Increasing HDL 'good' cholesterol
  • Reduces the buildup of fatty deposits in blood vessels
  • Lowering the level of fat in your blood (triglycerides)

Crestor is clinically proven medication in the UK and particularly effective if you have found altering your diet and doing more exercise has not provided the desired effect .

Category Total-C (mg/dL) LDL-C (mg/dL)
Acceptable <170 <110
Borderline 170-199 110-129
High ≥ 200 ≥ 130

What are the benefits of Crestor?

The most obvious benefit of this medication is its ability to lower cholesterol, however there are many other advantages linked to this multitalented statin...

  • It can lower triglyceride levels, meaning you will be less at risk of serious cardiovascular problems that are caused by high cholesterol.
  • Sufferers of high cholesterol who have developed the condition as a result of genetic, diet or lifestyle factors can take Crestor.
  • The risk of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and angina is reduced.
  • Can lower cholesterol within a month (20mg dosage)
  • Slows the plaque buildup in the blood vessels as well as the fatty deposits

How do you take Crestor?

Crestor tablets are extremely easy to take making statins so popular in the UK. People who are taking this medication for the first time will be prescribed either the 5mg or 10mg dose, depending on factors such as their cholesterol level and sensitivity to side effects. Only a doctor will be able to determine whether a higher dosage is required.

  • One tablet should be swallowed whole, with or without food, depending on your preference.
  • You should take one tablet each day at around the same time.

It is advisable to have your cholesterol checked regularly while taking this medication.

What dosages are available for Crestor?

The dose options for Crestor widely vary and will be recommended by your doctor. Because of this, when buying Crestor tablets online, you must have already been prescribed a statin by a medical professional. At HealthExpress, we offer 5mg and 10mg (the most common and usually the dosages offered when first beginning the medication) and 20mg and 40mg if you're finding the lower dosages to be ineffective.

What are the side effects of Crestor?

As with any prescription medication, side effects are a possibility with cholesterol statins. Mild side effects may include:

  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Indigestion

Less common side effects include:

  • Fever
  • Jaundice
  • Changes
  • Normal urination
  • Muscle pain
  • Loss of appetite

You should speak to your doctor if you experience any of these effects. Though it is very rare, some people may experience an allergic reaction, which will require urgent medical care.

What precautions should be taken when using Crestor?

Crestor is available for adults who have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, and require an effective method of reducing this in order to lessen the chance of future health complications. There are certain precautions that need to be considered though before ordering this medication. This treatment may not be suitable for:

  • Men or women that are allergic to the active ingredients in Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium)
  • Those who have or have suffered from liver failure or disease
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Those with myopathy

The highest dosage (40mg) is deemed not suitable for those with hypothyroidism, renal impairments, alcohol problems or muscular disorders. It is also important to avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice while taking any kind of statin, as consuming this fruit while taking statins can cause potentially serious side effects.
