Crestor - Possible Risks ??????


Crestor (rosuvastatin) is a cholesterol-lowering medication that blocks the production of cholesterol (a type of fat) in the body. Crestor works by reducing levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).

Crestor is used to treat high cholesterol in adults and children who are at least 10 years old. Lowering your cholesterol can help prevent heart disease and hardening of the arteries, conditions that can lead to heart attack, stroke, and vascular disease.
