Frequently asked questions about R2 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.
Yes, R2 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 R2 with clopidogrel?
R2 can be taken along with clopidogrel. R2 does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel. However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the R2 blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for R2 may be needed.
R2 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 R2 in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, R2 being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.
Q. Can I take R2 with pantoprazole?
Yes, R2 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 R2 with gemfibrozil?
Concomitant use of R2 with gemfibrozil should be avoided. Gemfibrozil can increase the blood levels of R2 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 R2 with ezetimibe?
R2, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to R2 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 R2, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Q. Can I take calcium supplements with R2?
R2 should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of R2. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of R2 to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
