Can Rozavel be taken for high blood pressure?
Side effects occur in few patients. It can be taken any time of the day.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.
To recapitulate: Male/60 - hypertension since 30 years - always under control with Nuril 5 and Felogard 5- Doctor prescribed Rosuvastatin (Rozavel) 5 alternate day - * as a precaution - read the side effects like heel ache and drowsiness etc- wants to know the incidence and the timing to be taken ... not tried anything as such.
Rosuvastatin is a statin that helps to reduce cholesterol.
It should be taken in cases of dyslipidemia or hyperlipidemia, meaning raised cholesterol and only if the diet restrictions and exercises failed to control raised cholesterol. May I please know your recent lipid profile blood test?
Rosuvastatin can have many side effects but are not that common.
Side effects do not happen in all cases.
This is one medicine that can be taken any time of the day with or without food, there is no restriction.
The only restriction is that if you are taking antacids, give a gap of 2 to 3 hours between the two.
I hope this answers your query.
Please feel free to ask further relevant queries if you need to or if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
