Description

Composition and form of release
Active ingredient: rozuvastatin (20 mg).
Rozucard is produced in the form of tablets.

Pharmacological properties
This is a remedy that corrects fat metabolism. The active ingredient selectively and competitively inhibits the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme, which catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA into a cholesterol precursor in the liver. Promotes an increase in the number of LDL receptors on the surface of liver cells, increasing catabolism and seizure. It also slows down the production of VLDL, thereby reducing the total content of “bad fats” in the blood.

  • with homozygous hereditary hypercholesterolemia – as an addition to diet, other lipid-lowering pharmaceuticals;
  • for the treatment of primary hypercholesterolemia (type IIa, including heterozygous hereditary hypercholesterolemia);
  • for the treatment of mixed dyslipidemia (type IIb) – as an addition to the diet when non-pharmacological methods are ineffective;
