Indications

Dyslipidemia

In adult patients, rosuvastatin is indicated to:

  • Decrease elevated total cholesterol (total-C), LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides (TG) and to increase high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) in adult patients with primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and non familial) or mixed dyslipidemia (Fredrickson types IIa and IIb). Rosuvastatin also decreases Apo B, nonHDL-C, VLDL-C, VLDL-TG, LDL-C/HDL-C, total-C/HDL-C, nonHDL-C/HDL-C, and Apo B/Apo A-I ratios and increases Apo A-I.
  • Treat isolated hypertriglyceridermia (Fredrickson type IV hyperlipidemia)
  • Treat patients with primary dysbetalipoproteinemia (Fredrickson type III hyperlipoproteinemia)
  • Decrease total-C and LDL-C in patients with homozygous familiar hypercholesterolemia as adjunct to other lipid-lowering treatments (e.g. LDL apheresis) or alone if such treatments are unavailable
  • Slow the progression of atherosclerosis as part of a treatment strategy to decrease total-C and LDL-C to target levels

In children and adolescent patients 10 to 17 years old, rosuvastatin is indicated to:

  • Decrease total-C, LDL-C and Apo B levels in children and adolescents 1o to 17 years old (boys Tanner Stage II and above, and girls who are at least one year post-menarche) with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia if after trial of diet therapy the following findings are present:

LDL-C > 190 mg/dL or
LDL-C > 160 mg/dL and:

  • There is a positive family history of premature cardiovascular disease or
  • Two or more other cardiovascular risk factors are present in the patient

Decrease the risk of stroke
