Frequently asked questions about Saanvas R Tablet
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 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 also are harmful fats found in your blood.
Yes, Saanvas r 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 Saanvas r with clopidogrel?
Saanvas r can be taken along with clopidogrel. Saanvas r does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel. However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the Saanvas r blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for Saanvas r may be needed.
Saanvas r 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 Saanvas r in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, Saanvas r being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.

Q. What is the benefit of taking Saanvas r with ezetimibe?
Saanvas r, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Saanvas r alone and without any increase in side effects.

Q. Can I take calcium supplements with Saanvas r?
