Crestor works by block the enzymes that make cholesterol therefore lowering the body’s level of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein. Low-density lipoprotein is more commonly known as LDL or the “bad” cholesterol. It also increases the amount of high-density lipoprotein (also known as HDL or “good” cholesterol) in the body. The combination of the proper cholesterol levels along with daily exercise and a low-fat diet will help slow down the buildup of plaque in your arteries. Crestor is taken once a day (with or without food) and is usually prescribed in low dosage form with gradual increases over the next four weeks. Purchase Crestor from Canada and you will svae big!

Some of the most common side effects include nausea, constipation, heartburn, headaches, tiredness and dizziness upon standing. Side effects such as muscle pain, chest pain or abdominal pain can be the signs of a serious condition and you should notify your physician immediately.

Thyroid disorders and blood sugar levels can be affected by using a HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor and any previous disorders should be addressed before starting Crestor. Crestor is also linked to severe conditions of the liver and should be closely monitored by repetitive blood tests. Any severe muscle pain, tenderness or weakness (especially if flu-like symptoms accompany it) can be an early sign of a rare muscle problem which can lead to serious kidney disorders and should be brought to your physician’s attention immediately. Muscle problems are more prevalent in patients that are over 65 years old and the chances of having a problem is increased when taking other medications. Crestor should not be taken while pregnant research has showing that it can cause harm to a fetus.
