Uses of Rosycap-ASP Capsule

Benefits of Rosycap-ASP Capsule

In Treatment of Prevention of heart attack and stroke

Rosycap-ASP 20/150 Capsule is a combination medicine that is used to prevent heart attack. It contains rosuvastatin that works by reducing the amount of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and raising the amount of “good” cholesterol (HDL) in blood. High levels of cholesterol can cause narrowing of the blood vessels (atherosclerosis). Lowering the amount of cholesterol reduces the chances of heart diseases and stroke and helps one remain healthier for longer.

Rosycap-ASP 20/150 Capsule also contains a blood thinner, aspirin, that prevents the formation of blood clots and the existing ones from growing bigger in size. Take it regularly and make appropriate lifestyle changes (such as eating healthy and staying active) to maximize the effectiveness of this medicine. Keep taking it even if you feel well.

In Prevention of Angina (heart-related chest pain)

Rosycap-ASP 20/150 Capsule prevents the formation of blood clot. This makes blood flow more easily around your body and makes sure that your heart is getting a good supply of oxygen. Altogether, it reduces the risk of a chest pain caused by angina. This medicine might help increase your ability to exercise and go about your daily life more easily. You should take it regularly and as long as it is prescribed for it to work effectively.

How Rosycap-ASP Capsule works

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 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. This way Rosycap-ASP 20/150 Capsule prevents blockade of blood vessels and reduces risk of heart attack, angina, or stroke.
