Crestor ( rosuvastatin calcium) is a prescription medication used for treating a number of conditions related to heart disease, including high cholesterol and high triglycerides. Approved uses of Crestor include:
* Lowering cholesterol in people with high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia). Crestor can reduce total cholesterol, LDL ("bad cholesterol"), ApoB, non-HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides -- as well as raise HDL ("good cholesterol").
* Lowering triglycerides in people with high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia).
* As an add-on treatment in people with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia to help lower total and LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol.
* Treating dysbetalipoproteinemia, a rare genetic condition characterized by high cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
* Slowing the progression of atherosclerosis (a hardening and narrowing of the arteries).
* Reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and bypass surgeries (or other revascularization procedures) in people at risk for heart disease.
