User Feedback


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 the 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 are harmful fats found in your blood.

Q. Can I take ROSUCORT with grapefruit juice?

Yes, ROSUCORT can be taken with grapefruit juice. As per the reports, using grapefruit juice with ROSUCORT does not change the working of ROSUCORT. There have not been any reports of any harmful effects of using them together.

Q. Why should ROSUCORT be taken at night?

ROSUCORT acts by blocking an enzyme which is important for cholesterol synthesis in our body. The activity of this enzyme is more at night time. Therefore, it is advisable to take ROSUCORT in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, ROSUCORT being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.

Q. Can I take calcium supplements with ROSUCORT?

ROSUCORT should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption, and hence lower the levels of ROSUCORT in the blood. This can lead to a decrease in the efficacy of ROSUCORT 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 ROSUCORT a narcotic substance?
