small orange pill H 30

I have taken crestor for 15 years but just got a different size and color pill. Smaller than the usual deep red, with H on one side and 30 on the other - Is this crestor? ## Hello Deb, I honestly wasn't able to find a pill that matches your description but based off of what the crestor website shows they do not make a pill that matches your description. I believe that it may still be a rosuvastatin pill but since it's a 30mg and crestor only makes 5/10/20/40mg it may be a generic instead. I am a little worried that I wasn't able to find it. Does your medication label have a manufacturer listed or a labeler listed? If so I might be able to get a bit more information on the pill if you would like.

is crestor a blood thinner

I am having hip replacement surgery next week and am on Crestor medication. Do I need to cease from taking this medication prior to surgery? ## No, it is a statin that is used to help lower cholesterol levels. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches. What medications has your doctor told you to stop taking, just blood thinners, or did they include any other categories? ## I would like to know if Crestor is considered a blood thinner? ## I took creator for many years. It was for cholesterol. I was extremely over the cholesterol limit at 1200 and sometimes higher. My triglycerides were high as well. After a few months of Tricor and Creator I was in total shock that my limits fell very fast and at lower levels. It sav...

Safety and Efficacy of Expired Crestor or Rosuvastatin

Can I use expired Crestor also known as Rosuvastatin after the expiration date? Maybe 2 or 4 months after expiration?

I have been taking Crestor 10 mg for 5 months but on various Statins for 2O years. A few days ago my skin started to feel like I had a sunburn in my face, behind my neck, buttocks and legs, plus a bit of a sore throat. It is not anxiety because I popped a prescribed Klonopin and I felt calm but still burning skin I am convinced this is the Crestor. My doc thinks I am crazy Has anyone heard of this.

blood pressure readings ?

my Dr checked my BP today in his office he did a 6 test cycle , it was remarkably good for once @ 120/65 BUT I noticed he checked with cuff on my right upper arm, When I test it is much higher BUT I use my left arm , So my DR re tested with cuff on Left arm, results were much high at 160/80 range . the question is is this OK? and why is there such a variation,Should I follow up with more investigation or just forget it ? ## Hello, Rob! How are you? Actually, that big of a difference in readings could be a sign of other cardiac problems, so you should consult a cardiologist. It is normal to have some fluctuations, but it shouldn't be that much, according to the NIH. Are you on any medications to treat it? ## i am not on a cardiac med, unless you consider, Crestor for cholesterol cont...

can i take this chlord clidi 5 2 5mg

can i take this chlord clidi if i take Crestor and a blood pressure meds ## Hello, Casey! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between the Crestor and Chlorthalidone. However, it is always best to double check such information to be certain. The FDA classifies Chlorthalidone as a diuretic that helps remove excess fluid from the body to treat conditions, such as edema, congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. What blood pressure medications do you take? I'm sorry, but I can't check those, without knowing more information. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!

cardiac quadruple bypass patient.switched from crestor to zuvamor 20 mg in jan 2014.ldl reading increased from 1.7 in September 2012 to 2.4 in April and everything else unchanged during this period. can zuvamor switchover be the culprit.


Increasing soreness, stiffness & swelling of pinky, spreading to rest of hand (both). COULD IT BE RELATED ZUVAMOR? Switched over to Zuvamor 10 from crestor +-6 months ago. No serious symptoms while on crestor (+- 2 years) Frequent inflammation (joints, muscles) while on Lipidor before. (Also currently on glucophage & victosa, also co-tarec), (Also on 9th of 12 month herceptin, chemo stopped 7 months ago) ## Hello, Zony! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. It could be due to this medication, but there is also a chance that you may have something else going on, from the limited information in your post, one can only guess. Have you consulted your doctor? That would bet he best thing to do to get too the root of the problem.
