User Feedback


FAQs

Q. What should I know about high cholesterol?
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.
Q. Can I take Razel with grapefruit juice?
Yes, Razel 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 Razel with clopidogrel?
Razel can be taken along with clopidogrel. Razel does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel. However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the Razel blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for Razel may be needed.
Q. Why should Razel be taken at night?
Razel 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 Razel in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, Razel being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.
Q. Can I take Razel with pantoprazole?
Yes, Razel 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 Razel with gemfibrozil?
Concomitant use of Razel with gemfibrozil should be avoided. Gemfibrozil can increase the blood levels of Razel 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 Razel with ezetimibe?
Razel, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Razel 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 Razel, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Q. Can I take calcium supplements with Razel?
Razel should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of Razel. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of Razel 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 Razel a narcotic substance?
No, Razel is not a narcotic substance. It's a prescription medicine and is available on providing a valid prescription by a doctor.
