Crevast more potent: The rosuvastatin (Crevast) is 4 times more potent then atorvastatin (Aztor) so it would not be equivalent. Talk to your doctor about switching.

Check with your doc: They are two different lipid lowering drugs. Your doc picked Crevast10 for a reason. So ask if it okay to switch before you do.
