Rozustat Gold 20 Capsule


Overview

Introduction of Rosuvastatin

Rosuvastatin is a medicine used to treat high cholesterol. This medicine helps by lowering "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides while at the same time raising "good" cholesterol (HDL). Lowering cholesterol levels reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. It may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. Lifestyle changes like low-fat diet, regular exercise, and smoking cessation may help this medicine to work better. Fatigue, muscle weakness, muscle pain, and stomach pain may be seen as side effects with this medicine. Diabetic patients should monitor their blood sugar levels while using this medicine, as it may lead to an increase in blood sugar levels. This medicine is not safe for pregnant women or those planning to become pregnant.

Introduction of Clopidogrel

Clopidogrel is a blood thinner which prevents formation of harmful blood clots. It reduces the risk of having another heart attack, stroke, or blood clots in stents. It can be used alone or in combination with other medicines. This medicine should be taken strictly as advised by the doctor and should not be stopped abruptly. It can increase the risk of bleeding, so be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g. football, wrestling). Let your doctor know immediately if you see pinpoint rash or blood in your vomits, urine, or stool (black or tarry). This medicine may need to be stopped temporarily before a planned surgery or dental treatment. Unlike aspirin, it does not cause any gastritis (stomach pain/burning and nausea).
