What is it

Generic Crestor is a drug from the class of statins that is used for lowering high blood cholesterol levels. More precisely, it lowers the levels of LDL, which is the so-called “bad” cholesterol, responsible for increased risk of stroke, coronary artery disease and heart attack. In addition, Generic Crestor raises the levels of HDL, which is the “good” cholesterol, and lowers the levels of triglycerides.

Classification and Mechanism of Action

The active ingredient of Generic Crestor is Generic Crestortatin, a drug from the class of statins. Statins lower the cholesterol levels by inhibiting a liver enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which produces cholesterol. Statins also reduce the risk of heart attack by reducing the levels of Hs-CRP, a chemical associated with the inflammation of coronary arteries. In addition, statins increase LDL (“good” cholesterol) levels and reduce the triglyceride levels, all of which greatly reduces the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.

Looking after it

Generic Crestor should be kept at room temperature, in a dark, dry place, away from the reach of children and pets.

How to take it

Generic Crestor is an oral medication, taken by mouth and swallowed whole, not chewed or sucked. It is best if taken at regular intervals, with some water, with or without food.

Dosage

The usual adult starting dose is 5 mg of Generic Crestor once a day. This dose can be gradually increased if needed. The maximum allowed dose is 40 mg a day, however, this dose is reserved only for those who are not responding to 20 mg.

Overdose

Do not take more than 40 mg of Generic Crestor in one day. If you have taken more than the allowed dose, please seek immediate medical attention at the nearest ER, hospital or poison control center.

Missed Dose

If you accidentally skip or miss a dose, take the drug when you can, but not if the time for the next scheduled dose is near. Do not double the dose.

Warnings and Precautions

Before starting treatment with Generic Crestor, inform your doctor of your medical history, especially of liver disease, kidney disease, alcohol consumption and smoking. This drug may not be suitable for pregnant or nursing women. Also make sure to inform your doctor if you are taking any other medications, because some of them may interact adversely with Generic Crestor. This particularly applies to blood thinners (warfarin), HIV medications, other drugs for high cholesterol and antacids based on aluminum and magnesium hydroxide.

Possible Side Effects

Generic Crestor may cause mild and temporary side effects such as nausea, upset stomach and headache. Less common but more serious side effects many include foamy urine, muscle pain or weakness, fever, jaundice, dark urine, abdominal pain and persistent vomiting. Serious allergic reactions are not common, but if they occur, they may involve rash, hives, swelling, irregular or rapid heartbeat, dizziness, confusion, fainting, seizure and coma.

Treating high cholesterol

Generic Crestor is a very good solution in treatment of high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. For best results, combine this drug with a healthy lifestyle, which should include a healthy low fat diet, exercise, quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption.

When should it not be used?

Generic Crestor should not be used in case of previous allergic reactions to Generic Crestortatin or any of the inactive ingredients of the drug, in case of elevated serum transaminases, severe liver disease and pregnancy.
