Rosutor-A 10/150 Capsule


Overview

Introduction

Moreover, it also decreases the formation of blood clots. This medicine should be taken with food to avoid stomach upset. Lifestyle changes like low-fat diet, exercise, and not smoking may help this medicine to work better. It may change liver function and blood sugar levels, so monitor them properly.

How Rosutor-A Capsule works

Rosutor-A 10/150 Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Rosuvastatin and Aspirin/Acetylsalicylic acid, which prevents heart attack and stroke. Rosuvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks an enzyme required in the body to make cholesterol. It lowers the "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises the "good" cholesterol (HDL). Aspirin/Acetylsalicylic acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-platelet action. It prevents the platelets from sticking together and decreases the formation of harmful blood clots.
