What Crestor Pills Look Like
Side effects of taking too much crestor (rosuvastatin) when starting to take it after 3 months of none? Took whole instead of half pill. Should I skip tomorrow?

You : You will likely be ok. However i recommend you contact your doctor and/or schedule an appointment. Blood tests should be done to make sure your liver was not affected. If you are experiencing abdominal pain, yellowing of the skin or eyes, or itching please seek medical care right away. Lastly please make sure all medications are in the appropriate bottle and read the bottle before taking. If the print is too small you can tell your pharmacy and they will make the print larger on all your medications. Take care. ...Read more
If I stop crestor (rosuvastatin) then all I take is 5mg lisinopril daily, at 92. I guess that is ok even though I never took pills in my life before.?
You're healthy!: May i humbly suggest that you are healthy and lived to 92 without cholesterol medication - then you certainly don't need them now! be healthy through lifestyle - good diet, exercise, a few supplements to support as needed! you are an example of the over-prescription of these medications in the U.S.! ...Read more
Saw cardiologist who said no heart failure, BP stable. He said only take lisinopril 5, crestor (rosuvastatin). Is that good? I'm 90. My friends take lots of pills.
That is very good: If you are 90 years old and only taking two pills that is excellent. Lisinopril is a great drug that lowers blood pressure, protects the kidney and may help prevent strokes. Crestor (rosuvastatin) is also a great medication for lowering cholesterol. You need to have periodic blood tests when you are on those drugs but i'm sure your doctors are doing those. Live long & laugh much. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no: Crestor’s maker suggests it should be taken whole and not be crushed, chewed, or broken. There is no reason that it cannot necessarily be crushed, aside from the coating possibly masking the drug’s medicinal taste, but do be aware upon crushing the tablet, some of the coating pieces could remain, kind of how like if you crushed M&M’s, you’d see the difference between chocolate and candy coating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not much: Treatment of elevated lp(a) is a bit tough. Potent statins can mitigate the risk by lowering the ldl-cholesterol level as much as possible (below 70 mg/dl), since that particle is tied to the ldl-c molecule. Estrogen therapy in women, Niacin in both sexes, and in the future, cholesterol ester transfer protein inhibitors (if they come to market) may lower lp(a) levels. ...Read more
Statin - Rosuvastati: Crestor is the brand name for rosuvastatin, one of several "statin" medications that inhibit hmg co-a reductase, the rate limiting enzyme in cholesterol synthesis. These medications increase the number of LDL receptors that bind and remove LDL particles from the circulation. Statins have been shown to significantly reduce heart attack, death from heart attack, and ischemic stroke. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Crestor (rosuvastatin): It is generally believed that cholesterol is produced by the body at night. The first drugs in the class (statins) were recommended to be taken with the evening meal. However, the new statins such as Crestor (rosuvastatin) have in the product labeling that it can be taken any time during the day. However, if it's not a hardship, i would still recommend that you take your Crestor (rosuvastatin) with your evening meal. ...Read more
Impossible: There is no generic medication for Crestor (rosuvastatin) at this time as the medication is still under patent. The generic name for Crestor (rosuvastatin) is Rosuvastatin and you may be on that med, but it is not generic (and won't be for years). Generic statins currently available are pravastatin, simvastatin, atorvastatin, and lovastatin. All statins have the same action, but some may be better for some people. ...Read more
