Crestor Medicine

Crestor® (rosuvastatin calcium) is a once-daily medicine commonly used to treat high cholesterol. It is also licensed to slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries), lower triglycerides, and increase HDL ("good cholesterol"). The medication comes in tablet form and is available in four different strengths.
 
Before you start Crestor, make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have liver disease, kidney disease, or hyperthyroidism. Although most people tolerate the medicine well, side effects are possible and may include problems such as nausea, muscle pain, and abdominal pain (stomach pain).
