Rosulip 10 general information

What is Rosulip 10 used for?

Rosulip 10 tablets 10mg are used to lower high levels of cholesterol (hypercholesterolaemia) and other fats (triglycerides) in the blood, to reduce health risks associated with coronary heart disease (CHD), including heart attack and angina that can be caused by high cholesterol. Rosulip 10 is also used to help slow the progression of blocked and hardened arteries (atherosclerosis). There are usually no symptoms when you have high cholesterol, which may be due to lifestyle (high-fat diet and lack of exercise) or can be inherited (familial hypercholesterolaemia). Rosulip 10 is used as an adjunct to a healthy low-fat diet and exercise when response to diet and exercise alone is not sufficient to lower cholesterol levels.

How does Rosulip 10 work?

Rosulip 10 tablets 10mg contain rosuvastatin which belongs to a group of cholesterol-lowing medications called statins. Cholesterol is needed by the body for many functions such as building cell membranes, producing certain hormones and transporting fat soluble vitamins around the body. However, if there is more cholesterol than the body needs, it becomes deposited in the artery walls where it can build up, blocking the arteries causing the arteries to harden (atherosclerosis), which increases risk of heart disease. Rosuvastatin in Rosulip 10 reduces the production of cholesterol in the liver, by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, an important enzyme involved in cholesterol synthesis. Rosulip 10 lowers levels of total cholesterol as well as reducing “bad” cholesterol (LDL) that can cause arteries to become hardened and blocked and also increases levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL) that helps unblock hardened arteries. Rosulip 10 only blocks cholesterol that is produced in the liver and has no effect on cholesterol that comes from fat in food, which is why a low-fat diet is important even when you are taking Rosulip 10.
