A hypolipidemic effect of statins is related to the reduction of the general cholesterol level by means of the reduction of lipoproteids of the low density. This type of cholesterol is the main cause of the vascular occlusion because it causes fatty plaques on the walls of the blood vessels.

If the effect is insignificant or the cholesterol level is slow during the use of Crestor 10 mg, the dose is increased up to 20 mg.


The maximal daily dose of Crestor is 40 mg but it is prescribed only during the severest forms of the hypercholesteremia when there is a high risk of the ischemic heart disease or other cardiovascular complications.
