How does Crestor work?

Like other statins, Crestor works by preventing the production of low density lipoprotein (LDL) commonly known as “bad cholesterol” by inhabiting HMG-CoA reductase (an enzyme in the liver tissue which is vital in producing cholesterol). Regular intake of this medication greatly helps in preventing coronary artery diseases and other cardiovascular ailments such as stroke, angina, and even heart attack.

Regular intake of Crestor can help in lowering LDL production by up to 52%, based on the studies conducted by AstraZenca (pharmaceutical company). Crestor also helps in promoting the production of high density lipoprotein (HDL) known as “good cholesterol” in the body. Based on various studies, HDL protects the human body from arterial diseases by taking cholesterol away from the cells and brings it back to the liver where it is either broken down or released by the body in the form of waste.

How do I take Crestor?

Before taking Crestor, see to it that you consult with your doctor, especially if you have kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, thyroid disorder and if you are an alcoholic.

Usually, the initial dosage of Crestor is low. However, the dosage gradually changes depending on how the body of the patient responds to the treatment. This medication must be taken orally at anytime of the day, with or without food. However, if the patient is switching from another HMG-CoA reductase reducing therapy, the starting dose (low dosage) should be used first. Afterwards, the dosage will be based on the response of the patient to the medication.

Are there side effects?

Although Crestor has been proven to be very effective and side effects are very uncommon, according to some reports, few of the patients taking this drug experience one or two side effects such as:

  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Heartburn
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Joint pain
  • Cough

Once you experience these symptoms, immediately stop taking Crestor and see your doctor as soon as possible.

Can I buy Crestor online?

Of course, buying Crestor online is fast and easy. However, you still have to undergo a free online consultation in order for you to get a prescription. The consultation with an online doctor will determine whether the medication you want is suitable for you. Once the doctor approves the medication, it will be sent to you within 24 hours.

    After having unwanted side affects with two other statins, my PCP suggested trying Crestor. This was about 6 years ago. Since then, as he states it, I could be the poster boy for Crestor. At only a 5mg/day dosage my cholesterol level has dropped from ~290 to consistently below 200 with no side affects. My only concern is there is no generic alternative and it is VERY expensive when the insurance companies declare that it’s not in their formulary of preventive medications. I’ve been lucky that my PCP has been able to convince the ins co that I can’t tolerate an alternative, so have not had to pay for the medication for the past several years (treated as preventative). That’s changing now that I’m retired and have to go to new insurance.

    I had triglycerides of 400 . Was put on crestor 5mg. After a month they were down to 280. By 5 weeks my legs and arms would wake me up at night with horrible aches. My feet got so bad I would get out of bed and have to hold on because the muscles were numb. Went back to the dr. take it 3x a week now. No side affects. With coupon online I pay 1.00 for 30 day supply. Shop around. Go back in 2 weeks will see if 3 times a week helps lower the t. at all.

    At age 65 my cholesterol reading creeped past borderline to high. I was put on 5mg of Crestor. After only one month, my LDL went from 167 to 79. At first I took at bedtime but noticed some minor leg pain. I switched to taking with evening meal and pain stopped.

    I took crestor for about two years with minor side effects. Since I turned 65, I noticed my leg muscles ( hamstrings, Knees) were hurting. I stopped taking Crestor and my legs feel better. The drug did help lower my cholesterol but my legs were killing me and I had trouble walking due the stiffness and pain. While I am not 100% certain my leg pain was due to Crestor, it certainly looks that way.It has only been 6 days since I stopped.

    For about 6 years my physician prescribed Lipitor for high cholesterol. I couldn’t take it due to muscle cramps. After that I was prescribed Zocor, Pravachol and finally the orange drink, Colestipol. Always had adverse side effects so I decided to stop trying. I lost 20 pounds but before the cholesterol dropped with any real significance, I regained the weight. The physician kept saying my cholesterol was dangerously high but I did not want the side effects. I had to change insurance companies which meant a new physician. This one said the same along w/a bit of a lecture. She prescribed Crestor, 5mg per day. After 3 months & no side effects it went from 280 to 155. I couldn’t believe it. I am 60 years old.

    I am 52 and have been taking statins for 25 years. From mevecor, zocor, to Lipitor, zetia and now Crestor. I am lucky to have had no side effects but will say the Crestor has worked best at 40mg daily it helps keep it down around 230. Had a 95% blockage at age 28 and 1 stent last year. I believe statins have protected my heart over the years! My brother can not take them and had a quadruple bypass at 49. Also everyone should have a calcium scan, simple and life saving.

    I’ve been taking rosuvastatin for about two months now and had a blood test taken after five weeks on it. Overall levels went from 266 to 147, LDL 169 to 73, HDL 48 to 44, and Trigs from 250 to 150. I didn’t really make much effort to change diet as I wanted to get a good idea of what the drug was doing on its own. I will make necessary diet changes and try to get the numbers down a bit more so that I can either take the medication less often or perhaps switch a lower dose. Fortunately, I’m not experiencing any adverse side effects. Seems to be a pretty effective drug if you can tolerate it.
