About Roswow CV 20 Capsule

Roswow CV 20 Capsule is used to prevent heart attack and stroke in the future. It lowers the raised level of cholesterol and fats (triglycerides) in our body. A heart attack is a condition in which your coronary arteries (blood vessels supplying blood and oxygen to the heart) become blocked due to the build-up of fats (plaque), including cholesterol. These plaques narrow the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, mainly for most heart attacks.

Roswow CV 20 Capsule is composed of two medicines, Rosuvastatin and Clopidogrel. Rosuvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks the enzyme required to make cholesterol in the body. As a result, it lowers the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins or LDL), triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Clopidogrel is a blood thinner (anticoagulant) that collectively prevents a clot in the blood vessels. Together, Roswow CV 20 Capsule reduces the increased levels of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides) and prevents blood clots, thereby reducing and preventing the risk of heart attack, stroke and heart-related chest pain (angina).

Take Roswow CV 20 Capsule exactly as directed by your doctor. The dose and duration of Roswow CV 20 Capsule may differ depending on the reason why you're taking it and your responses to treatment. In some cases, you may experience headaches, ankle swelling due to fluid retention (oedema), slow heart rate, and nausea. Roswow CV 20 Capsule is known to cause dizziness, so driving should be avoided. Most of these side effects of Roswow CV 20 Capsule do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Try not to stop taking Roswow CV 20 Capsule of your own. Suddenly, stopping Roswow CV 20 Capsule may worsen your condition and increase your risk of a future heart attack. Inform your doctor if you are allergic to rosuvastatin or clopidogrel or have any active liver disease (liver enzyme abnormalities), active bleeding issues (like peptic ulcer, brain haemorrhage), or muscle problem (myopathy, rhabdomyolysis). The patient should inform the doctor that they are taking Roswow CV 20 Capsule before any surgery is scheduled or any new medicine is taken. Rosuvastatin, present in Roswow CV 20 Capsule , is a pregnancy category X drug, so it should not be given to pregnant women. It may cause harm to the fetus if administered to pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Heart attack: Heart attack is when your coronary arteries (blood vessels supplying blood and oxygen to the heart) become blocked due to the build-up of fats (plaque), including cholesterol. These plaques narrow the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, mainly for most heart attacks.

Stroke: Stroke occurs when the blood and oxygen supply to the brain is blocked or minimized. As a result, the brain tissue is deprived of getting oxygen and nutrients. After a few minutes, brain cells (neurons) start to die. A stroke is a medical emergency; immediate treatment is required; it can cause brain damage, coma or even death. 

Atherosclerosis: Atherosclerosis occurs when fats, cholesterol, and other substances known as plaque deposit on your artery walls and restrict blood flow. This plaque formation triggers blood clots, narrows the artery's size, and hardens it. This, in turn, can lead to various heart complications like atherosclerosis, heart attack, heart-related chest pain (angina), and stroke. However, it can also affect the body's arteries apart from the heart.
