What is the best time to take crestor (rosuvastatin) 10 mg?

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.

I was just wondering the best time for crestor (rosuvastatin)?

Can Be Taken Anytime: Some statins (pravachol, zocor, (simvastatin) mevacor) have very short half-lives (2-4 hours) and have a better effect if taken at night. This is because the medication works by decreasing cholesterol synthesis which is increased during the evening hours. Other statins (lipitor, crestor) have very long half-lives (14-18 hours) and have equal effect if taken in the morning or evening.

Are statin drugs safe for long-term use? I take 5 mg. Crestor (rosuvastatin) 5 x week. It's keeping my numbers in check, but at what cost over time? 48 yr old male.

Statins: As far as we presently know statins are safe over time. There are some questions whether long term there might be some abnormalities of glucose handling produced. There are liver and other abnormalities which we've seen with statins that sometimes require the statin to be withdrawn. The great majority of patients on statins have no problems to the present time.

Can I take diaformin, insulin, micardis, (telmisartan) efexor and crestor at the same time?

Can I take diaformin, insulin, micardis, (telmisartan) efexor and crestor at the same time?

Drug interactions: Insulin, micardis, effexor, (venlafaxine) and Crestor may all be taken together safely. I could not find a drug under the spelling of "diaformin". Assuming that this is a variant of 'metformin' that would lead to a very small risk of low blood sugar when mixed with insulin.

I take cresstor once a day I mistook it for Zofran I take once a day and took crestor (rosuvastatin) 3 pills a day for 2 days then I caught my I take crestor (rosuvastatin) once a day and Zofran 2times a day will I be alright

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.

NO!: No, you have a good response - these figures are enviable. If you stop, they'll deteriorate. Your HDL still isn't optimal but your LDL is - keep up the good diet and keep taking your medicine!

My husband takes Crestor (rosuvastatin) 20mg also Metformin 2, 000 mg a day. Has lots of muscle pain/spasms for many years. Would CoQ10 help in some way or not?

Co q: There is some literature that suggests co enz q may reduce pain associated with statin use. Sometimes I t is necessary to prove statins are causing the problem by stopping them and re-challenging the drug. Would consult your doctor prior to any changes
