Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions about Suvalip Tablet

Frequently asked questions about Rosuvastatin

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, Suvalip 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 Suvalip with clopidogrel?
Suvalip can be taken along with clopidogrel. Suvalip does not interfere with the antiplatelet action of clopidogrel. However, a high dose of clopidogrel can increase the Suvalip blood concentration by 2-fold causing more chances of the side effects, so a dose adjustment for Suvalip may be needed.
Suvalip 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 Suvalip in the evening hours after a meal or just before going to bed to have maximum effect. However, Suvalip being a longer acting statin can be taken at any time of day.
Q. Can I take Suvalip with pantoprazole?
Yes, Suvalip can be used along with pantoprazole. No drug-drug interactions or any harmful effects have been reported when they are used together.
Q. Is it safe to take Suvalip with gemfibrozil?
Concomitant use of Suvalip with gemfibrozil should be avoided. Gemfibrozil can increase the blood levels of Suvalip and damage your muscles. If you are taking both the drugs, be careful and look for any muscle symptoms. Inform your doctor if you have muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness or dark colored urine.
Q. What is the benefit of taking Suvalip with ezetimibe?
Suvalip, when used with ezetimibe, helps in a better decrease in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to Suvalip alone and without any increase in side effects. This combination is very beneficial in high-risk cardiovascular disease patients as its use can decrease the risk of atherosclerotic plaque rupture and heart attack. However, ezetimibe can increase the blood levels of Suvalip, so a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Q. Can I take calcium supplements with Suvalip?
Suvalip should not be taken with calcium supplements as calcium can decrease its absorption and hence lowers the blood levels of Suvalip. This can lead to a decrease in efficacy of Suvalip to lower blood cholesterol levels. To avoid this effect, there should be a gap of at least 2 hours between the two medicines.
No, Suvalip is not a narcotic substance. It's a prescription medicine and is available on providing a valid prescription by a doctor.
