In clinical studies, Rosloy, when compared to an equal dose of atorvastatin, had a better lipid lowering effect. There was no significant difference in the safety profile of both the drugs.
Q. Is Rosloy same as simvastatin?
Rosloy and simvastatin are different drugs. However, they belong to the same group of drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor and both are used for lowering high lipid levels in the blood.
Q. Can I take Rosloy with ibuprofen?
Rosloy 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 Rosloy with magnesium?
Magnesium taken as a health supplement is not known to have any interaction with Rosloy. However, taking the drug with antacids containing magnesium hydroxide can decrease the amount of Rosloy in the body by half and the effectiveness of Rosloy may decrease.

Rosloy should be used with caution in patients having high cholesterol due to hypothyroidism especially if the underlying disease is not properly treated.
Rosloy 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 Rosloy. 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.
Rosloy 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 Rosloy if you are a diabetic.
Rosloy 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.

Muscle pain is one of the common side effects associated with Rosloy 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 Rosloy 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, Rosloy 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 Rosloy with clopidogrel?
Rosloy can be taken along with clopidogrel. Rosloy does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel.However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the Rosloy blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for Rosloy may be needed.
Q. Which is more beneficial in the management of cardiovascular diseases - Rosloy or atorvastatin?
Both Rosloy 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, Rosloy 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.
Yes, Rosloy 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 Rosloy increase vitamin D levels in your body?
Rosloy 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.
Rosloy 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 Rosloy in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, Rosloy being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.
Q. Would a combination of ezetimibe and simvastatin be better than Rosloy 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 Rosloy 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 Rosloy different from lovastatin?
Both Rosloy and lovastatin belong to the same class of drugs and are used to manage high blood cholesterol levels. However, Rosloy 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 Rosloy better than pravastatin?
Both Rosloy and pravastatin belong to the same class of drugs and are used to manage high blood cholesterol levels. However, Rosloy 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, Rosloy can be taken with or without food while food interferes with the absorption of pravastatin.
Q. Can I take Rosloy with quetiapine?
Yes, Rosloy 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 Rosloy with coenzyme q10?
Rosloy can be taken with coenzyme Q10. According to some clinical studies, coenzyme Q10 can help in decreasing the muscle damage caused by Rosloy while some of the studies say that it has no role in preventing muscle damage. Also, Rosloy has been thought to decrease the levels of coenzyme Q10. So, it is advised sometimes to use coenzyme Q10 along with Rosloy to decrease its side effects.
Q. Can I take Rosloy with diphenhydramine?
Yes, Rosloy 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 Rosloy with pantoprazole?
Yes, Rosloy 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 Rosloy with gemfibrozil?

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 Rosloy with ezetimibe?
Rosloy, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDLcholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Rosloy 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 Rosloy, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Rosloy is not approved for use in the treatment of cancer. Some research studies have shown that Rosloy 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.
Rosloy 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 Rosloy.
Yes, Rosloy 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. Rosloy 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.
Rosloy 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). Rosloy 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 Rosloy with Febuxostat?
Rosloy can be taken with febuxostat. Rosloy 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 Rosloy causing a higher risk of its side effects like muscle pain and muscle damage. So, a dose adjustment of Rosloy may be needed when given along with febuxostat.
Rosloy 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 Rosloy 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 Rosloy?
Rosloy can be safely taken with vitamin C. There are no drug-drug interactions reported between the two and no harmful effects have been seen. Rosloy 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 Rosloy?
Rosloy should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of Rosloy. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of Rosloy to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
No, Rosloy is not a narcotic substance. It's a prescription medicine and is available on providing a valid prescription by a doctor.
No, Rosloy is not a nitrate. It is a lipid-lowering medicine and belongs to a group of medicines known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.
