Dosing With Rosuvastatin: Final Thoughts

Remember that lowering cholesterol begins with lifestyle changes (weight loss, diet, and exercise). If lifestyle changes alone do not lower cholesterol to a desirable level, medication such as rosuvastatin may be necessary. However, when people are taking cholesterol medication, lifestyle changes are still important for maintaining a good cholesterol level.
 
If you are unsure about anything related to your rosuvastatin dosage, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
