Introduction

Xtor 20 Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called statins. It is used to lower cholesterol and to reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that builds up in your blood vessels and causes narrowing, which may lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Xtor 20 Tablet is a widely prescribed medicine and is regarded as safe for long-term use when taken as per doctor's advice. It can be taken with a meal or on an empty stomach. You can take it at any time of the day but try to take it at the same time each day. Most people with high cholesterol do not feel ill, but if you stop taking this medicine, your condition could get worse. This may lead to your cholesterol levels rising up again and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. 

It is important to have your cholesterol levels checked regularly. This medicine is only one part of a treatment program which should also include a healthy diet, regular exercise, smoking cessation, moderation of alcohol intake and weight reduction. You can eat normally while taking this medicine, but try to avoid foods that are high in fat. 

Common side effects of this medicine include headache, constipation, muscle pain, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea and nasopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and nasal passages). These are usually mild and disappear after a short time. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you notice any yellowing of your eyes or get repeated or unexplained muscle pains. 

This medicine should not be used in some conditions such as liver disease. Also, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers should not take this medicine as it may harm the developing baby. Diabetic patients should monitor their blood sugar levels while taking this medicine, as it may lead to an increase in blood sugar levels. Your doctor may check your liver function before starting the treatment and monitor it regularly thereafter.

વારંવાર પુછવામાં આવતા પ્રશ્નો

Q. Is Xtor used for lowering cholesterol?

Xtor belongs to a group of medicines known as statins, which are lipid (fat) lowering medicines. Xtor is used to lower lipids known as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood when low-fat diet and lifestyle changes fail to lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. If you are at an increased risk of heart disease, Xtor can also be used to reduce such risk even if your cholesterol levels are normal. You should maintain a standard cholesterol-lowering diet during treatment.

Q. Can Xtor be prescribed to children?

Xtor is for adults and children aged 10 years or more whose cholesterol does not come down enough with exercise and low-fat diet. It is not approved for use in patients younger than 10 years old.

Q. Is Xtor a blood thinner?

No, Xtor is not a blood thinner. It is a cholesterol-lowering medicine. It works by slowing down the production of cholesterol in the body to decrease. This further decreases the amount of cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body. By lowering the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides it prevents the chances of stroke and heart attack.

Q. What should I know about high cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat present in your blood. Total cholesterol is determined by the total amount of LDL and HDL cholesterol in the body. LDL cholesterol is called “bad” cholesterol. Bad cholesterol 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.

Q. Will taking Xtor increase my risk of diabetes?

If you are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, taking Xtor may increase this risk slightly. This is because Xtor can raise your blood sugar a little. If you already have type 2 diabetes, your doctor may advise monitoring your blood sugar levels more closely for the first few months. Tell your doctor if you find it harder to control your blood sugar.

Q. For how long do I need to take Xtor? Is it safe for long-term use?

You may need to take Xtor life long or for the duration prescribed by your doctor. The benefits will only continue for as long as you take it. If you stop taking Xtor without starting a different treatment, your cholesterol level may rise again. It is considered to be safe and has few side effects if taken as directed by the doctor.

Q. Does Xtor cause weight loss?

No, Xtor has not been reported to cause weight loss. However, weight gain has been reported as an uncommon side effect. Please consult your doctor if you experience weight loss while taking Xtor.

Q. Can I stop taking Xtor?

No, you should not stop taking Xtor without consulting your doctor. You should consult your doctor if you think that taking Xtor is causing side effects. Your doctor may accordingly decide to lower your dose or change your medicine.

Q. Does Xtor cause memory loss?

No, Xtor does not cause loss of memory. However, it is an uncommon side effect of Xtor, and may affect only 1 in 100 people. Please consult your doctor if you experience any symptoms of memory loss after taking Xtor.

Q. When should I take Xtor?

Xtor is generally taken once a day. It can be taken in the morning or night or at any time of the day, with or without food. Try taking this medicine at the same time every day to help remember when to take it.

Q. What does Xtor do to the body?

Xtor acts on the liver and stops it from making bad cholesterol. It not only lowers the levels of LDL-C (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides but also helps to raise your HDL-C (good cholesterol). This in turn, lowers the risk for heart attack, stroke, certain types of heart surgery, and chest pain in patients who have heart disease or diabetes.

Q. What are the most common side effects of Xtor?

The common side effects of Xtor include nausea, indigestion, constipation, flatulence, diarrhea, headache, and aches and pains in your back and joints. It may also cause nosebleeds, sore throat, and cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, blocked nose or sneezing.
