Crestor is a statin drug that’s prescribed to reduce the levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and triglyerides in your blood. When left untreated, cholesterol and fat can collect along arterial walls, which limits blood flow and may eventually cause a heart attack or stroke. For the best results, Crestor should be used along with diet and lifestyle changes, including lowering saturated fat intake and increasing exercise.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Crestor exactly as prescribed.
Crestor is usually taken once daily, either with or without food.
Follow a cholesterol-lowering meal plan while taking Crestor.
Avoid alcohol when taking cholesterol, as it can raise triglyceride levels and increases risk of liver damage.
Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb Crestor. Don’t take antacids unless directed by your doctor, and don’t take them within 2 hours of Crestor.
Patients of Asian descent might absorb Crestor at a higher than normal rate.
Don’t take Crestor if you have liver disease.
Crestor may cause birth defects, and should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Before taking Crestor, inform your doctor if you have:
A thyroid disorder
A muscle disorder
Epilepsy or seizures
Low potassium or other electrolyte imbalances
Some side effects of Crestor include:
Tiredness or weakness
Nausea, upset stomach
Contact your doctor immediately if you experience:
Muscle pain and weakness accompanied by fever or dark colored urine
Changes in frequency or burning during urination
Swollen hands or feet
How soon does Crestor start to work?
You may see results on your blood work as soon as 2 to 4 weeks. Because high cholesterol often comes with no symptoms, you might not feel any different when taking Crestor.
Can I drink alcohol while taking Crestor?
Drinking alcohol while taking Crestor can increase your risk of liver damage. Avoid alcohol, and tell your doctor if you’re used to consuming more than 2 alcoholic beverages daily.
What is a cholesterol-lowering diet?
A cholesterol-lowering diet typically involves eating fewer sources of saturated and trans fats (full-fat dairy, fatty and processed meats, packaged snacks and pastries). Eat fewer processed foods, more vegetables, and sources of fiber like whole grains and vegetables. For complete cholesterol-lowering meal plans, your doctor may recommend a consultation with a nutritionist or dietitian.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
