Product Description:

General information
Crestor is part of a class of drugs called statins. It works by blocking a particular enzyme that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body. Crestor is used to treat high cholesterol in adults and children who are at least 10 years old. Lowering your cholesterol can help prevent heart disease and hardening of the arteries, conditions that can lead to heart attack, stroke, and vascular disease.
Directions
Take Crestor exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Before starting rosuvastatin, you should be following a cholesterol-lowering diet. The recommended dose ranges between 5 mg and 40 mg once daily. For most people, the usual recommended starting dose is 10 mg once daily. It may be taken in the morning or in the evening, with or without food. If necessary, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 40 mg daily. For people with severely reduced liver function, the maximum daily dose is 20 mg. For people with severely reduced kidney function, the maximum daily dose is 10 mg. A starting dose of 5 mg daily is recommended for people of Asian descent (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Asian-Indian origin) and those who have severe kidney problems.
Precautions
Before taking Crestor you should talk with your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), heart attack or stroke, any allergies, if you are of Asian descent, drinking alcohol frequently. Limit alcoholic beverages. Daily use of alcohol may increase your risk for liver problems. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of this drug, especially muscle problems. Avoid eating foods that are high in fat or cholesterol. Avoid using antacids without your doctor's advice. Use only the specific type of antacid your doctor recommends, and do not take it within 2 hours after taking rosuvastatin.
