Crestor - Overview
Crestor is a medication used in the management of a variety of lipid disorders, including some conditions that lead to high cholesterol. People who need a Crestor medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Crestor tablets when appropriate to do so.
What Is Crestor Used For?
Crestor is a medication that features the active ingredient rosuvastatin calcium. Crestor, like atorvastatin (Lipitor), ezetimibe (Zetia), pitavastatin (Livalo), pravastatin (Pravachol) and simvastatin (Zocor), belongs to a class of medications known as statins that works as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. As this type of medication, Crestor blocks the actions of the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, the rate-controlling step in a metabolic process that produces mevalonic acid and leads to the synthesis of cholesterol. Because of this, Crestor is indicated for use in people with hyperlipidemia, hypertriglyceridemia, and other types of lipid disorders.
Crestor - Dosage and Price
Crestor prescription medication is available as Crestor 5 mg tablets, Crestor 10 mg tablets, Crestor 20 mg tablets, and Crestor 40 mg tablets. After oral administration, Crestor is not actively metabolized by the body and the majority of the drug is found bound to proteins in the plasma. Plasma levels tend to peak within 5 hours after oral administration of Crestor medication. Crestor's active ingredients are primarily removed from the body through the liver and typically have an elimination half-life of under one day. Branded Crestor tablets are expensive, costing $9 or more per Crestor 20 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a Crestor medication prescription when applicable. Crestor coupons may also be available online or using a copay card. Crestor tablets are usually stored at room temperature but consult the package insert for exact instructions.
Can I Buy Crestor Online?
Crestor is a prescription medication meaning that one cannot just buy Crestor online in the United States without the first, necessary step of getting a Crestor prescription from a medical provider. Because of these regulations, Crestor OTC is not available online, either. People who need a Crestor medication prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Crestor tablets, including Crestor generic medication, when appropriate to do so.
Crestor - Side Effects
Crestor, like similar medications, can cause side effects when used. Side effects that may result from Crestor use include muscle pain, headache, nausea, abdominal pain and fatigue. Crestor can affect the liver and should be used cautiously in people with liver disease. Crestor can increase the risk of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis. People with a known hypersensitivity to Crestor medication or ingredients in the formulation should not use Crestor tablets. Crestor and alcohol should not be used concomitantly. Questions and concerns about using Crestor prescription medication should be discussed with a medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.
