Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions about Conchol Tablet

Frequently asked questions about Rosuvastatin

Cholesterol is a type of fat present in your blood. Your total cholesterol is made up of LDL and HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is called “bad” cholesterol as it can build up in the wall of your blood vessels and slow or obstruct blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. This can cause heart diseases and stroke. HDL cholesterol is called “good” cholesterol as it prevents the bad cholesterol from building up in the blood vessels. Triglycerides also are harmful fats found in your blood.
Clinical studies have shown that Concholw is well tolerated in patients even after long-term use and is relatively safe. However, it has its own side effects and hence should only be used in the dose, and for the duration as advised by your doctor.
No, Conchol is not a blood thinner. It is a lipid-lowering medicine and belongs to a group of medicines known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.
Q. Can I take Conchol with ibuprofen?
Conchol can be safely taken with ibuprofen. There are no reported drug-drug interactions or harmful effects when they are used together.
Q. Can I take Conchol with magnesium?
Magnesium taken as a health supplement is not known to have any interaction with Conchol. However, taking the drug with antacids containing magnesium hydroxide can decrease the amount of Conchol in the body by half and the effectiveness of Conchol may decrease. So, antacids should be taken at least two hours after taking Conchol.
Q. Can I take Conchol with ranitidine?
Conchol can be taken with ranitidine. There are no reported drug-drug interactions or harmful effects when they are used together.
Q. Can you take Conchol with levothyroxine?
Levothyroxine is not known to have any interaction with Conchol.

Conchol should be used with caution in patients having high cholesterol due to hypothyroidism especially if the underlying disease is not properly treated.
Conchol is not known to have any effect on weight. 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 Conchol. However, if you notice any change in body weight during therapy, consult your doctor as it could be due to some underlying condition that needs attention.
Conchol use is seen to be associated with an increase in blood sugar levels in clinical studies. The increase is similar to as seen in a diabetic patient and you may need treatment for the same. Consult your doctor before taking Conchol if you are a diabetic.
Conchol use is not associated with erectile dysfunction. If you have this problem, this could be due to some other underlying condition and you may need to consult a doctor.
Yes, Conchol can lower triglyceride levels. It also lowers total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels and increase the HDL levels.

Muscle pain is one of the common side effects associated with Conchol use. Be careful and look for any muscle symptoms like muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness or dark colored urine. If you have any of these symptoms, stop taking Conchol and immediately inform your doctor. These symptoms could be due to muscle breakdown and release of muscle proteins into the blood stream (this condition is known as rhabdomyolysis) and this can lead to problems like kidney failure.
Yes, Conchol can be taken with grapefruit juice. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
Q. Can I take Conchol with clopidogrel?
Conchol can be taken along with clopidogrel. Conchol does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel.However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the Conchol blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for Conchol may be needed.
Yes, Conchol can be taken along with vitamin D. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
Q. Can the use of Conchol increase vitamin D levels in your body?
Conchol 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.
Conchol 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 Conchol in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, Conchol being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.

Q. What is the benefit of taking Conchol with ezetimibe?
Conchol, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDLcholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Conchol 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 Conchol, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Conchol is not approved for use in the treatment of cancer. Some research studies have shown that Conchol 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.
Conchol 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 Conchol.
Yes, Conchol 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. Conchol 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.
Conchol 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). Conchol 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 Conchol with Febuxostat?
Conchol can be taken with febuxostat. Conchol 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 Conchol causing a higher risk of its side effects like muscle pain and muscle damage. So, a dose adjustment of Conchol may be needed when given along with febuxostat.
Conchol 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 Conchol 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 Conchol?
Conchol can be safely taken with vitamin C. There are no drug-drug interactions reported between the two and no harmful effects have been seen. Conchol 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 Conchol?
Conchol should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of Conchol. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of Conchol to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
