    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with grapefruit juice?
    Yes, rosuvastatin can be taken with grapefruit juice. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. What is the benefit of taking rosuvastatin with aspirin?
    Rosuvastatin decreases the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins - LDL and triglyceride) levels and increases the good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins - HDL) levels in the body. Aspirin prevents the platelets from sticking to each other. So, when used together, they block the development of any plaque in the blood vessels (deposition in the arteries where cholesterol combines with fat, calcium, and fibrin). This plaque buildup can lead to heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with clopidogrel?
    Rosuvastatin can be taken along with clopidogrel. Rosuvastatin does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel.However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the rosuvastatin blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for rosuvastatin may be needed.
    Q. Which is more beneficial in the management of cardiovascular diseases - rosuvastatin or atorvastatin?
    Both Rosuvastatin and Atorvastatin are seen to be equally safe and effective in lowering bad cholesterol, increasing good cholesterol and possibly reversing plaque formation when given in their maximum doses. However, Rosuvastatin is seen to decrease LDL cholesterol better than Atorvastatin in many studies but the difference was not significant in terms of slowing disease progression and improving clinical outcomes.
    Q. Can I use rosuvastatin with vitamin D?
    Yes, rosuvastatin can be taken along with vitamin D. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. Do rosuvastatin increases vitamin D levels.?
    Rosuvastatin has shown to increase vitamin D levels in many clinical research studies. In some studies, the rise has been up to three times the base level. However, the mechanism by which it increases the vitamin D levels is still not clear.
    Q. Why should rosuvastatin be taken at night?
    Rosuvastatin acts by blocking an enzyme which is important for cholesterol synthesis in our body. The activity of this enzyme is more at night time, so, it is advisable to take rosuvastatin in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, rosuvastatin being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.
    Q. Would a combination of ezetimibe and simvastatin be better than rosuvastatin alone?
    Ezetimibe and Simvastatin are used to treat high cholesterol and triglyceride levels along with a proper diet. Together they are useful in preventing conditions like heart attack and stroke by delaying the formation of plaques in the blood vessels. In one of the clinical studies, ezetimibe and simvastatin combination was found to be better than Rosuvastatin alone in decreasing the LDL-cholesterol, other non-HDL-cholesterol, and total cholesterol especially in high-risk patients (uncontrolled hyperlipidemia or obese patients).
    Q. How is rosuvastatin different from lovastatin?
    Both rosuvastatin and lovastatin belong to the same class of drugs and are used to manage high blood cholesterol levels. However, rosuvastatin is more effective in lowering blood cholesterol and its action stays for a long time and it can be taken at any time of the day whereas lovastatin is to be taken only in the evening. The dose of lovastatin needs adjustment in patients with the moderate-to-severe renal disease while a dose of lovastatin needs adjustment only in severe renal disease.
    Q. How is rosuvastatin better than pravastatin?
    Both rosuvastatin and pravastatin belong to the same class of drugs and are used to manage high blood cholesterol levels. However, rosuvastatin is more effective in lowering blood cholesterol and its action stays for a long time and it can be taken at any time of the day whereas pravastatin is to be taken only in the evening. Also, rosuvastatin can be taken with or without food while food interferes with the absorption of pravastatin.
    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with quetiapine?
    Yes, rosuvastatin can be used along with quetiapine. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with coenzyme q10?
    Rosuvastatin can be taken with coenzyme Q10. According to some clinical studies, coenzyme Q10 can help in decreasing the muscle damage caused by rosuvastatin while some of the studies say that it has no role in preventing muscle damage. Also, rosuvastatin has been thought to decrease the levels of coenzyme Q10. So, it is advised sometimes to use coenzyme Q10 along with rosuvastatin to decrease its side effects.
    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with diphenhydramine?
    Yes, rosuvastatin can be used along with diphenhydramine. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. Can I take rosuvastatin with pantoprazole?
    Yes, rosuvastatin can be used along with pantoprazole. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
    Q. Is it safe to take rosuvastatin with gemfibrozil?
    Concomitant use of rosuvastatin with gemfibrozil should be avoided. Gemfibrozil can increase the blood levels of rosuvastatin and damage your muscles. If you are taking both the drugs, be careful and look for any muscle symptoms. Inform your doctor if you have muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness or dark colored urine.
    Q. What is the benefit of taking rosuvastatin with ezetimibe?
    Rosuvastatin, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDLcholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to rosuvastatin alone and without any increase in side effects. This combination is very beneficial in high-risk cardiovascular disease patients as its use can decrease the risk of atherosclerotic plaque rupture and heart attack. However, ezetimibe can increase the blood levels of rosuvastatin, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
    Q. What is the benefit of taking rosuvastatin with ezetimibe?
    Rosuvastatin, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a much better decrease in LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to rosuvastatin alone and without any increase in side effects. This combination is very beneficial in high-risk cardiovascular disease patients as its use can decrease the risk of atherosclerotic plaque rupture and heart attack.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin useful in the management of cancer?
    Rosuvastatin is not approved for use in the treatment of cancer. Some research studies have shown that Rosuvastatin can stop the growth of cancer cells and when given after surgery, it can kill the remaining cancer cells if any and can help in preventing cancer from coming back. Clinical research studies are going on for its use in patients of colon cancer as it may prevent the formation of polyps and the recurrence of colon cancer but this use is still under research and not approved.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin beneficial in the treatment of obesity?
    Rosuvastatin is not indicated for the treatment of weight loss (obesity). Weight loss with this drug has only been reported by some patient and is seen in some animal studies. But there are no human research studies to show weight loss with rosuvastatin.
    Q. Can I take Rosuvastatin for dyslipidemia?
    Yes, rosuvastatin is very useful in the treatment of dyslipidemia, a lipid disorder with very high or very low lipid levels in the blood. Most common lipid disorder is hyperlipidemia in which the patient has high levels of bad lipids (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides, and low levels of good lipids (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL) in the blood. Rosuvastatin along with exercise and a low-fat diet decreases the LDL levels and increases the HDL levels and decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke on long-term use.
    Q. Does Rosuvastatin play any role in the management of stroke?
    Rosuvastatin is seen to be useful in preventing new episodes of ischemic stroke in the brain. Ischemic stroke occurs when there is a blockage of the blood vessel of the brain decreasing blood flow to a particular area of the brain. This blockage occurs due to plaque formation (deposition in the arteries where cholesterol combines with fat, calcium, and fibrin). Rosuvastatin decreases the chances of plaque formation by lowering the cholesterol levels in the body and hence low-fat the risk of new episodes of stroke. It is not routinely prescribed for the prevention of hemorrhagic stroke.

    Q. Can I take Rosuvastatin with Febuxostat?
    Rosuvastatin can be taken with febuxostat. Rosuvastatin is used to lower bad cholesterol and Febuxostat is used to lower uric acid levels in patients with gout. Many patients of high cholesterol levels also have high uric acid levels. There are no human studies available on this interaction. However, animal research shows that when given together, febuxostat can increase the blood levels of Rosuvastatin causing a higher risk of its side effects like muscle pain and muscle damage. So, a dose adjustment of Rosuvastatin may be needed when given along with febuxostat.
    Q. Does Rosuvastatin play any role in the management of sepsis-associated Acute (or Adult) respiratory distress syndrome?
    Rosuvastatin is not used in the treatment of sepsis associated Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS is a condition in which there is inflammation of the lung leading to severe organ failure and this could be due to an underlying infection (sepsis). It is seen in some human research studies that there is no useful effect of Rosuvastatin in treatment of the sepsis associated ARDS. Rather, it may cause damage to liver and kidney in these patients.
    Q. Is there any benefit of taking vitamin C with Rosuvastatin?
    Rosuvastatin can be safely taken with vitamin C. There are no drug-drug interactions reported between the two and no harmful effects have been seen. Rosuvastatin is a cholesterol lowering agent used to treat hyperlipidemia. Vitamin C also acts as an anti-oxidant and few studies have shown that vitamin C can also help to lower bad cholesterol. So, using them together can actually be beneficial to lower the blood cholesterol levels.
    Q. Can I take calcium supplements with Rosuvastatin?
    Rosuvastatin should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of rosuvastatin. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of rosuvastatin to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin a narcotic substance?
    No, Rosuvastatin is not a narcotic substance. It's a prescription medicine and is available on providing a valid prescription by a doctor.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin a nitrate?
    No, Rosuvastatin is not a nitrate. It is a lipid-lowering medicine and belongs to a group of medicines known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin a diuretic?
    No, Rosuvastatin is not a diuretic. It is a lipid-lowering medicine and is used to lower increased levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. A diuretic is a medicine, which removes excess water and electrolytes from the body through urine.
    Q. Is Rosuvastatin a beta blocker?
    No, Rosuvastatin is not a beta blocker. It is a lipid-lowering medicine and is used to lower increased levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
