Were you looking for information on Crestor? Crester is a common misspelling of Crestor.
Crestor® (rosuvastatin calcium) is a prescription medicine used to treat high cholesterol. In addition to lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol), the drug can raise HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and lower triglycerides.
The drug's effects help reduce the risk of developing problems related to high cholesterol, such as heart disease or a heart attack. In fact, in people who do not yet have heart disease but have certain risk factors for heart disease, Crestor is approved to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and heart bypasses (or other revascularization procedures).
A few side effects of Crestor include muscle pain, constipation, nausea, and weakness. Among the conditions you should tell your healthcare provider about before you take Crestor are heart disease, kidney disease, and liver disease or liver failure. To reduce the chances of drug interactions, you should also let your healthcare provider know about all of the medicines you currently take.
