Rosuvas tablets 10mg contain rosuvastatin, a cholesterol-lowering medication that is used to treat high cholesterol by lowering high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, which helps reduce risk of heart disease.

Rosuvas general information

What is Rosuvas used for?

Rosuvas tablets 10mg are used to lower high levels of cholesterol (hypercholesterolaemia) and other fats (triglycerides) in the blood, to reduce health risks associated with coronary heart disease (CHD), including heart attack and angina that can be caused by high cholesterol. There are usually no symptoms when you have high cholesterol, which may be due to lifestyle (high-fat diet and lack of exercise) or can be inherited. Rosuvas 10 is used as an adjunct to a healthy low-fat diet and exercise, when response to diet and exercise alone is not sufficient to lower cholesterol levels.

How does Rosuvas work?

Rosuvas tablets 10mg contain rosuvastatin 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 increasing risk of heart disease. Rosuvastatin in Rosuvas 10 reduces the production of cholesterol in the liver, by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, an important enzyme involved in cholesterol synthesis. Rosuvas tablets 10mg lower levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) that can cause arteries to become hardened and blocked, and also increases levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL) that helps unblock hardened arteries. Rosuvas 10 only blocks cholesterol that is produced 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 Rosuvas 10.
