Crestor (rosuvastatin) is in a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." Rosuvastatin reduces 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 lower cholesterol and triglycerides (types of fat) in the blood.
Crestor is also used to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other heart complications in people with diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors
Genitourinary side effects associated with other HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors have included erectile dysfunction, impotence, and testicular pain, so the decrease semen volume may be related.
