Crestor belongs to a family of statin drugs, which are taken to treat hyperlipidaemia or high blood cholesterol.
The active ingredient of Crestor is a statin called rosuvastatin. Statins work by reducing the amount of LDLs (lipoprotein transporters which deposit cholesterol in the arteries) and triglycerides (fatty substances) in the blood stream. In addition, statins increase the amount of HDLs which are good as they remove cholesterol from the cells and arteries and carry it to the liver.
Yes. To make the treatment as effective as possible, you should make your diet healthier. You need to reduce the amount of high cholesterol and high fat foods you consume, and undertake more exercise. You should be able to receive advice from DrEd or your doctor on how to control your diet whilst taking Crestor.
You should quit smoking if you have high blood cholesterol. Smoking can contribute to causing high blood cholesterol levels. To make the treatment as effective as possible, you need to avoid smoking or second -hand smoking. To get advice on how to quit, talk to your GP.
No, statins can interact with alcohol. You should avoid drinking whilst on medication for high blood cholesterol, but an occasional glass should not affect you too much. You can ask DrEd or your GP if you tend to drink regularly and heavily or if you are concerned about this matter.
Grapefruit contains chemicals which may increase the amount of statins in the blood. This will not make the treatment more effective and can even cause some serious damage, so avoid eating grapefruit whilst taking rosuvastatin.
This will depend on what’s in your vitamin tablets. You should tell a pharmacist that your Crestor medication may interact with nicotinic acid or preparations containing nicotinic acid.
You must have a prescription to take Crestor. It could be prescribed as a treatment for patients with high blood cholesterol, or as a preventative measure to reduce hardening of the arteries. Crestor does not tend to be suitable for patients over 70 or patients under 10 years old/ children who have not yet reached puberty. You should not take Crestor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. For a full and comprehensive list of who can and can’t take Crestor, check the “Warnings tab”.
Yes, you can obtain this from DrEd or your GP.
Since high blood cholesterol has no real symptoms in the first place, it can be difficult to tell whether treatment is working. Around 2 months after you start treatment, arrange to see you GP to get a cholesterol test. A score above 5.5 needs to be discussed.
Cholesterol levels will decrease within the first few months of treatment. The risk of heart attack will be reduced by about 10% after the first yea, rising to around 33% after three years.
The 5mg tablets are yellow and round. The 10mg and 20mg tablets are pink and round. The 40mg tablets are pink and oval. All the tablets are marked with the dosage
You will usually be started off with a 5mg daily dose. This may be increased by your doctor depending on how well you respond to the treatment. The maximum daily dosage is 40mg. The maximum daily dosage for children is 20mg.
You should take your tablet at the same time daily with a full glass of water. Swallow the tablet whole. You can take the tablet with or without food.
If you forget a tablet, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue treatment as normal.
If you overdose, seek medical assistance immediately.

This is the first time I have used this service. Website was easy to navigate and online questions very clear. prompt response and delivery of malaria tablets.
I cannot believe how easy it was to order, pay and then receive the goods. They kept me informed throughout. I wish all companies were this easy to deal with
I have been prescribed the same medication for over 4 years, yet I still have the hassle of taking valued time off work to visit my GP/local pharmacy for repeat prescriptions. This tedious exercise costs me a half day's annual leave for little more than a blood pressure reading and ironically, I own my own electronic blood pressure meter! DrEd.com - inexpensive, well packaged and prompt delivery.
Placed order one day delivered the next in discrete packaging, treatment worked as directed. Would use again and reccomed
A very good service very helpful with all my needs i would tell all my friends if they needed help
