Using Crestor to lower cholesterol

The active ingredient in Crestor is rosuvastatin. This drug effectively inhibits a specific enzyme which is responsible for acting as a catalyst in the formation of cholesterol in the liver. Without this enzyme, the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver is much more difficult.

You take a tablet of Crestor once a day with some water. The time of the day on which you take Crestor is not important, you may take it either with or without food. Crestor is available in different dosages, based on your medical questionnaire, a doctor will determine which dosage is suitable for you.
