Rosuvastatin 20 MG (Rosuvastatin Calcium Eq to Rosuvastatin 20 Mg)
BIOIELD – CRESTOFINE-20: ROSUVASTATIN 20 MG TABLET contains a single salt of Rosuvastatin in the strength of 20 mg in the form of a tablet under the brand name ‘CRESTOFINE-20’. This tablet is available in 10*10 ALU-ALU packing. CRESTOFINE-20: ROSUVASTATIN 20 MG TABLET is being prescribed by Cardiologists for high cholesterol. High cholesterol is also referred to as dyslipidemia or hyperlipidemia. The liver creates cholesterol, a waxy substance that is essential for cell formation. It is only potentially dangerous when there is an excessive level of cholesterol in the blood. When there is too much lipid (fat) in the blood, a condition known as hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol occurs. Triglycerides, LDL (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol), and HDL (high-density lipoprotein) are the three different types of lipids. LDL is referred to as “bad” cholesterol. Less than 110 mg/dL of LDL cholesterol and less than 170 mg/dL of total cholesterol are considered healthy levels.
HDL, on the other hand, is regarded as the “good” cholesterol. Over 45 mg/dL is the ideal HDL concentration. Your treating physician or dietician may have advised you to avoid grapefruit juice or products if you are taking statin therapy, but this is not entirely accurate. Grapefruit is a CYP3A4 inhibitor, which means that grapefruit or its juice lessens CYP3A4 activity. As a result, some statins, like atorvastatin, remain in the body longer, increasing toxicity and Side Effects. However, CYP3A4 has little impact on rosuvastatin. Therefore, if you are about to take rosuvastatin, it is okay to include grapefruit juice or grapefruit in your diet.
CRESTOFINE-20: ROSUVASTATIN 20 MG TABLET is a drug that functions by inhibiting an enzyme called HMG-CoA-reductase, which the body needs to produce cholesterol. This lowers “bad” cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides, and raises “good” cholesterol (HDL). Due to CYP3A4’s minimal influence on rosuvastatin, which results in fewer drug and food interactions, it may be safer than atorvastatin.
CRESTOFINE-20: ROSUVASTATIN 20 MG TABLET is used as a measure to lower “bad” cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, and triglycerides) and raise “good” cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. This drug is known as “statins.” It reduces cholesterol made by the liver. Lowering “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides and raising “good” cholesterol minimize the risk of heart disease and help to prevent heart attacks. The liver’s CYP3A4 enzyme, which also lives in the gastrointestinal tract, extensively metabolizes atorvastatin. Many different types of medications are metabolized by CYP3A4. Contrarily, CYP3A4 has little impact on the metabolism of rosuvastatin, which is metabolized by the enzyme 2C9. Rosuvastatin is less likely than atorvastatin to interact with food and other drugs as a result.
CRESTOFINE-20: ROSUVASTATIN 20 MG TABLET should be taken daily only once a day. It is advised to take the tablet in the morning or at night or any time of the day or as directed by your treating doctor with or without food.
The most frequent Side Effects of rosuvastatin are headache, nausea, and stomach pain. Statins frequently cause stomach upset and muscle pain as Side Effects. Because dosing and alternative options can be customized based on your health status, tolerance, and personal preference, please discuss any Side Effects you may experience with your healthcare providers.
