What is Rosuvastatin?
Rosuvastatin belongs to the statin class of medications, which is used to reduce the body’s cholesterol levels. It prevents the liver’s HMG-CoA reductase enzyme, essential for synthesizing cholesterol. Rosuvastatin helps lower blood levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein), or “bad” cholesterol while raising blood levels of HDL (high-density lipoprotein), or “good” cholesterol, by decreasing the liver’s ability to manufacture cholesterol. Rosuvastatin cannot be purchased over-the-counter; it requires a prescription. It is available in various forms, usually as oral tablets or capsules in varying strengths, enabling effective cholesterol management by customized dosing.
