Zarator tablets 20mg contain atorvastatin that is used to lower high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood (hypercholesterolaemia), which helps reduce risk of heart disease.

Zarator general information

What is Zarator used for?

Zarator tablets 20mg are used to treat primary hypercholesterolaemia to lower high levels of cholesterol and other fats (triglycerides) in the blood and reduce risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), including heart attack and angina, that can be caused by high cholesterol. There are usually no symptoms for high cholesterol, which may be due to lifestyle (high-fat diet and lack of exercise) or can be inherited (familial hypercholesterolaemia). Zarator tablets 20mg are used in the absence of symptoms in conjunction with a low-fat diet, if diet alone is not sufficient to lower cholesterol levels. Zarator 20 is also used to prevent the progression of CHD, if symptoms are already present; also to treat people with diabetes or history of stroke, to reduce the need for surgery, and reduce the risk of stroke or peripheral vascular disease.

How does Zarator work?

Zarator tablets 20mg contain atorvastatin which belongs to a group of cholesterol-lowing medications called statins. Cholesterol is needed by the body for many functions such as building cell membranes, producing certain hormones and transporting fat soluble vitamins around the body. However, if there is more cholesterol than the body needs, it becomes deposited in the artery walls where it can build up, blocking the arteries and causing hardened areas called plaque, which increases risk of heart disease. Atorvastatin in Zarator-20 reduces the production of cholesterol by the liver by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, an important enzyme involved in cholesterol synthesis. Cholesterol is released into the blood as low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) to distribute cholesterol around the body; high density lipoprotein (HDL-C) picks up excess cholesterol from the arteries and returns it to the liver to be disposed of or re-used. Atorvastatin in Zarator-20 lowers levels of LDL-C, which is known as the “bad” cholesterol as it can cause blocked arteries, and also increases levels of HDL-C, which is known as the “good” cholesterol (HDL) that helps unblock hardened arteries. Zarator-20 only inhibits production of cholesterol that is synthesised in the liver and has no effect on cholesterol that comes from fat in food, which is why a low-fat diet is important even when you are taking Zarator-20.

What does Zarator contain?

Zarator-20 contains the active ingredient atorvastatin, which is a cholesterol-lowing medication belonging to the group of drugs called statins. They also contain: calcium carbonate, cellulose – microcrystalline, lactose, croscarmellose sodium, polysorbate 10, hydroxypropylcellulose, magnesium stearate, opadry white YS-1-7040, simethicone emulsion.
