Crestor is a medication that is prescribed for the treatment of cholesterol. It is also used to lower triglycerides in the blood. The active ingredient in Rosuvastatin is HMG CoA Reductase Inhibitor, also known as “statin”. Statins work by reducing the levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. In addition, this medication increases the amount of good cholesterol. These actions help to keep cholesterol levels under control. This in turn helps to lower the risk of stroke and heart conditions in patients who are diabetic or who have heart disease. The starting dose for most adults is 5 mg. Crestor can be used in adults and children over 10 years old.
The possible Crestor side effects include constipation, headache, itching, joint pain, loss of appetite, mild muscle pain, nausea, and stomach pain. The serious Crestor side effects include:
