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. What is the benefit of taking Recotor with ezetimibe?
Recotor, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDLcholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Recotor 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 Recotor, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Recotor is not approved for use in the treatment of cancer. Some research studies have shown that Recotor 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.

Yes, Recotor 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. Recotor 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.
Recotor 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). Recotor 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 Recotor with Febuxostat?
Recotor can be taken with febuxostat. Recotor 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 Recotor causing a higher risk of its side effects like muscle pain and muscle damage. So, a dose adjustment of Recotor may be needed when given along with febuxostat.
Recotor 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 Recotor in treatment of the sepsis associated ARDS. Rather, it may cause damage to liver and kidney in these patients.

Recotor can be safely taken with vitamin C. There are no drug-drug interactions reported between the two and no harmful effects have been seen. Recotor 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 Recotor?
Recotor should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of Recotor. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of Recotor to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
