Roswera 15 mg. 30 tablets
What is Roswera and what it is used for
Roswera belongs to a group of medicines called statins.
Roswera is prescribed to you because:
You have high cholesterol levels. This means there is a risk of getting a heart attack or stroke.
Roswera is used in adults, adolescents and children at or above 6 years of age to treat high cholesterol.
If you have high cholesterol levels you are advised to take a statin because changing the diet and doing more exercise is not enough to correct cholesterol levels. You should continue your diet and cholesterol lowering exercises while taking Posevre.
There are other factors that increase the risk of heart attack, stroke or heart problems.
Infarction, stroke and other problems can be caused by a disease called atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis is due to accumulation of fat deposits in your arteries.
Why is it important to continue taking Pink?
Pink is used to correct the levels of fatty substances in the blood called lipids, the most common of which is cholesterol.
There are different types of cholesterol in the blood - "bad" cholesterol (LDL-C) and "good" cholesterol (HDL-C).
Pink can reduce the "bad" and increase "good" cholesterol.
It works by helping block the "bad" cholesterol your body produces. It also improves your body's ability to remove it from the blood.
In most people, high cholesterol levels do not change the way they feel because they do not cause symptoms. However, if left untreated, fat deposits thicken the walls of the blood vessels and lead to their narrowing.
Sometimes, these narrow blood vessels can block, which stops the blood supply to the heart or brain leading to a heart attack or stroke. By adjusting cholesterol levels, you can reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke or related heart problems.
You need to continue to take Roswera even if your cholesterol reaches normal levels, as this prevents a new rise in cholesterol leading to accumulation of fatty deposits. However, you should stop it if your doctor tells you to do so or if you become pregnant.
