Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name: Rosuvastatin Calcium (roe-SUE-vuh-stah-tin)

Crestor tablets CANNOT be split

Crestor is used with diet changes (restriction of cholesterol and fat intake) to reduce the amount of cholesterol and certain fatty substances in your blood. Accumulation of cholesterol and fats along the walls of your arteries (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow and therefore the oxygen supply to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Lowering your blood level of cholesterol and fats may help to prevent heart disease, angina (chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks.

Directions:

It is imperative to take CRESTOR exactly as prescribed by your physician and the directions on your prescription label. Do not take in excess amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your physician.

Generally, CRESTOR is taken daily with water. Patients may take the medication with or without food. It is important to take CRESTOR regularly to get the maximum benefit of the medication.

CRESTOR is only part of a complete program of treatment. Patients should supplement their medication with a healthy diet, exercise and weight control.

There are several things to avoid while taking CRESTOR:

  • Avoid eating foods that are high in fat or cholesterol. CRESTOR will not be as effective in lowering your cholesterol if patients do not follow a cholesterol-lowering meal plan.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol while taking CRESTOR as it can increase triglyceride levels and possibly damage your liver.
  • Avoid using antacids without your physician's advice. Consult your physician about which type of antacid is right for you. Do not take the antacid within 2 hours after taking CRESTOR as it contains different chemicals.

Cautions:

Consult your physician before you start taking CRESTOR to confirm that you are not allergic to it or any other chemicals contained in this medicine. Inform your physician of any medications that you are taking, including prescription, non-prescription and/or herbal supplements. Clinical studies have informed physicians that individuals of Asian descent may absorb the chemical called rosuvastatin - which is the main ingredient of CRESTOR - at a higher rate than others. Ensure your physician is informed of your ethnicity as you may require a lower dose to start this medicine.

Do not take this medication if:

  • you are allergic to CRESTOR, rosuvastatin or any other chemical contained in the medicine
  • you have liver disease
  • you are pregnant or breast-feeding
You may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take CRESTOR if you have any of the following conditions:
  • kidney disease
  • underactive thyroid
  • a muscle disorder
  • epilepsy or seizure disorder
  • an electrolyte imbalance
  • a severe infection or illness
  • had a recent surgery or medical emergency
** use an effective form of birth control while using this medicine

Side Effects:

Some rare side effects that may occur while taking this medication include:

  • constipation
  • stomach pain
  • upset stomach
  • heartburn
  • diarrhea
  • weakness
  • dizziness
  • difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • depression
  • back pain
  • joint pain or weakness
  • sore throat, runny or stuffy nose
  • memory loss
Stop taking CRESTOR and call your physician if you experience any of these serious side effects:
  • muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness with fever or flu symptoms and dark colored urine
  • urinating more or less than usual, or not at all
  • nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
  • chest pain
  • swelling in your hands or feet
  • pain or burning when you urinate
Get immediate emergency help if you have any signs of an allergic reaction: hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

**Please note this is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your physician for medical advice about side effects.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
