Rosuvas 20 MG Description

Rosuvas 20 tablet is a lipid-lowering medication. It contains rosuvastatin as its active ingredient. Rosuvas 20 tablet acts by inhibiting the enzyme involved in the formation of cholesterol in your b

ody. Thus, it decreases the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) and increases good cholesterol levels (HDL). You should preferably take this medicine at bedtime since cholesterol production or build-up takes place majorly at night, when the body is in the resting phase. Take this medicine in the exact dose and duration as recommended by your doctor. Do not stop taking this medicine on your own. It is important that you have a cholesterol-lowering diet while taking Rosuvas 20 tablets for adequate control of your blood cholesterol levels.
