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