What is Crestor?

Crestor is part of a group of medications called statins. Crestor uses the active ingredient rosuvastatin to treat high cholesterol. It aims to control the high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol levels to keep you as healthy as possible on a long term basis.

Statins work by lowering your cholesterol levels and consequently reduce the risk of developing serious health problems in the future, such as heart attacks and strokes.

How does Crestor work?

Crestor, and other statins, work by slowing down your liver’s production of cholesterol, which in turn will result in overall lower levels of LDLcholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol) present in your body. Crestor also increases your levels of HDL, known as ‘good’ cholesterol, and this will help keep your levels of bad cholesterol down.

Statins also help the liver to remove LDL cholesterol that’s already in your blood. All of this won’t just promote healthier cholesterol levels going forwards, but it will help prevent heart attacks and strokes from happening in the future too.

What doses of Crestor are there?

Crestor isn’t a one size fits all type of medication, each person will need a dosage that fits their needs. Crestor comes in 5mg, 10mg, 20mg, and 40 mg dosages, so there are a few different options and you will only get the right one prescribed to you.

The severity of the cholesterol and other medications you take or conditions you have can all affect the dosage of Crestor you need, so it’s better to speak to our doctor so they can assess all the factors and advise you on the best dosage.

How to take Crestor

Taking Crestor is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is swallow a tablet at the same time every day. The tablet can be taken with or without food, so you don’t need to coordinate your mealtimes with medication-taking times.

If you’re not used to taking medication or tend to forget to take it on time, you can set an alarm at the same time every day to make sure that you follow the regimen correctly. Alternatively, you can get a dosette box and prep your tablets for the whole week. That way, if you forget if you took your tablet or not, you can just check the box and see if that day’s tablet is missing or not.

How long does it take Crestor to work?

Your body won’t feel the effects of Crestor immediately after you start taking it; it can take up to a week for Crestor to take any effect, but it takes longer than that to reach its full benefits. The timeline varies and every person will react uniquely to the medication, but you almost certainly get the full benefits of Crestor in less than a month of using it.

What should I do if I make a mistake when using Crestor?

If you forget to take a tablet and it’s almost time for your next one, just skip it and take the following dose as scheduled. You shouldn’t take two tablets at the same time to make up for a missed dose.

To make sure that you don’t forget if you took your tablet or not, and to avoid taking more tablets than necessary, you can get a dosette box that will tell you if you took that day’s dose or not. This can be especially useful if you take multiple medications.

If you accidentally take too much Crestor you should seek emergency medical attention. A healthcare professional will be able to treat your symptoms.

FAQ: Crestor

Have something specific you want to know about Crestor? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Crestor different from other treatments for high cholesterol?

Answer:
Crestor is the best option for people with severe cases of high cholesterol as it works faster and more effectively. But studies show that the risk of developing diabetes is higher with Crestor than any other statin. The numbers aren’t alarming though, and the percentage of people at risk of developing diabetes is still below 1% at 0.6%.

Most studies that were done on Crestor and other statins have also shown that rosuvastatin, the active ingredient in Crestor, is more effective in the management of cholesterol levels than other types of statins.

Is Crestor similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Crestor is the branded version of statins that use the active ingredient rosuvastatin, the generic version has the same name as the active ingredient - Rosuvastatin. These two medications will work the exact same way, but the difference between the two isn’t just the name, it’s the price too as the generic is usually cheaper.

Which dose of Crestor should I use?

Answer:
The dose of Crestor you take will depend on how high your cholesterol levels are and how long you take Crestor for. You will usually start on a 5mg or 10mg tablet a day which will increase after some time if needed. If your cholesterol levels are under control with 5mg or 10mg you can continue taking that dose.

The lowest dosage of Crestor available might be offered to you if you’re over 70, if you’re of Asian origin, or if you have kidney problems or myopathy. This is because people in these groups will be at higher risk of adverse effects if they take higher doses of Crestor.

How effective is Crestor?

Answer:
Studies have shown that 5mg of rosuvastatin, or Crestor, is highly effective in high cholesterol treatment. It lowers LDL cholesterol levels, as well as triglycerides, total cholesterol, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, apolipoprotein B levels, and it increases HDL cholesterol levels. In other words, Crestor can effectively eliminate most of the bad cholesterol in your body and increase the amount of good cholesterol, which in turn will keep the bad cholesterol under control.

Studies also show that Crestor can lower your cholesterol levels more than other statins such as atorvastatin, simvastatin, and pravastatin.

Do I need a prescription for Crestor?

Answer:
Yes, you will need a prescription to get Crestor. In fact, you will need a prescription to get any statin, as you will have to be monitored by a doctor to make sure that the medication is working as intended. A doctor will also need to check that it’s safe and suitable for you to use in the first instance.

Why should I buy Crestor online with Treated?
