Cholesterol Lowering Drug Crestor Rates Highest on Side Effects

A recent study on the side effects of cholesterol lowering drugs determined that Crestor, generic name, rosuvastatin, rated higher than any other drug used to lower cholesterol on the market today. The study was conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In comparing Crestor to other statin drugs, it was found by the FDA’s monitoring system to account for twice as many occurrences of adverse side effects than Zocor.

Crestor, while effective in creating lower cholesterol levels in patients, has more than six times as many counts of side effects as Lipitor or Pravachol. These side effects include severe muscle damage and kidney problems. These are the same adverse side effects found in such great number with the drug Baycol that forced it to be taken off the market by the FDA in 2001. Crestor does not have the same rate as the ill-fated Baycol.

The FDA at the time these findings were issued warned doctors that there are flaws in the FDA’s monitoring system. It does not always take into account all of the other drugs cholesterol patients using Crestor may have been taking with it. This makes it impossible to determine which reactions were part of multi-drug use interactions and which were caused solely by Crestor.

In order to lower cholesterol without the risk of side effects or adverse drug interactions, it is important to follow a drug free plan of diet and exercise. A low cholesterol diet and the use of specific vitamins and minerals can bring about the same positive results as the drugs: lower cholesterol.
