In brief: Crestor (rosuvastatin) Stroke
To a 90 old, who has paid her dues, with hypertension, hyperlipidemia & stroke.
I feel, there is no need to give crestor (rosuvastatin). There is more risk than benefit. Crestor (rosuvastatin) dose is also adjusted with kidney function. No crestor (rosuvastatin), to this patient.

In brief: Unnecessary
At age 90 it is unclear that the benefits of Crestor (rosuvastatin) outweigh the risk.
Discuss the need for cholesterol medication with your doctor.
