The Lowest Effective Dose of Crestor

As Goldilocks in The Three Bears tale, your healthcare provider needs to find an appropriate dosage of Crestor that minimizes side effects while optimizing its cholesterol-reducing potential. Finding a dose that's "just right" ensures optimal effectiveness of treatment while also minimising side effects.

As you begin taking a drug, your physician may initially prescribe a lower dosage and adjust it over time until they find one which achieves your treatment goal - this is known as the lowest effective dose.

Clinical studies show that CRESTOR significantly reduced Total-C, LDL-C, hsCRP, ApoB non HDL-C levels while increasing HDL-C in patients suffering from hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia; however results vary according to patient.

Your ideal dosage will depend on various factors such as age, weight and other considerations. Your physician can also help to determine whether Crestor can safely be taken alongside specific medicines.

Crestor can cause serious side effects, including rhabdomyolysis (a serious type of muscle problem). You should report any adverse reactions immediately.

Clinical trials revealed the most prevalent side effects of Crestor were stomach upset and headache. Other common reactions may include sore throat, swollen glands, and muscle pain.

Elderly patients (65 years and older) taking higher doses of rosuvastatin experienced an increased risk of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis when compared to younger subjects. Furthermore, they should be closely monitored for signs and symptoms of liver disease or kidney failure such as any changes in their blood urea nitrogen, creatinine levels or urine analysis results.
