Doctors prescribe Crestor 20 mg along with diet to lower bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. Crestor contains the active ingredient Rosuvastatin, which is a well-known lipid-lowering agent. Rosuvastatin is one of the two most used statins. The medicine belongs to a class of drug known as statins (cholesterol-lowering medicines), which is potent, effective, and safe to use. In clinical trials, the medicine has been shown to cause significant reduction when compared to other statins. High cholesterol levels cause a build of plaque (fat deposit) over time, which results in narrowing of blood vessels. This is one of the major causes of heart disease. Rosuvastatin effectively slows down this plaque build-up along the wall of blood vessels. The medicine has been proven to reduce the risk of heart diseases such as heart attack and stroke especially in older adults.
