About CONSIVAS 5MG D3 TABLET

CONSIVAS 5MG D3 TABLET belongs to the class of medicines called 'antilipemic' or cholesterol-lowering agent primarily used to lower raised cholesterol level. This reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke in future. High cholesterol known as hyperlipidaemia or dyslipidaemia occurs when there is an excess of the unhealthy balance of cholesterol in the blood. When the cholesterol level is high in the blood, your arteries get narrowed and clogged, contributing to heart diseases, like stroke and heart attack. Two cholesterol types are found in our body, namely, good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein) and bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein). Good cholesterol is good for our heart and helps in reducing the bad cholesterol from our body. On the other hand, excess bad cholesterol (LDL) leads to the risk of heart diseases like heart attack and stroke.

CONSIVAS 5MG D3 TABLET is a combination of two drugs: Rosuvastatin (statin) and Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3). Rosuvastatin belongs to the class of statins or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors that work by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme in the body that is essential to make cholesterol. Thereby, it decreases the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) by the liver. Also, it reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack by reducing the excess cholesterol deposition in the major blood vessels of the brain and heart. Cholecalciferol is vitamin D3 that helps in the absorption of calcium by the body and also relieves muscle pain caused by Rosuvastatin.

Take CONSIVAS 5MG D3 TABLET with or without food as prescribed by your doctor and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it.
