Common Questions and Answers about Crestor generic alternative


Dinosaur Hi, I have horrible insurance. I was wondering is there an alternative to Lovaza 1GM, JANMET XR 1000MG or Crestor 10MG. because at these prices I'm having to pay. The med will kill before Diabetes.
Avatar n tn You could switch to a generic form of the same drug that you are on. For example: if you take zocor, you could switch to simvastatin, if you take pravachol, you could switch to pravastatin. I wouldn't mess around with lovastatin because it is slightly weaker, plus I doubt that anyone would have you on a brand-name of this drug. Lipitor and crestor aren't available in generic. If you take either one of these you could still switch to simvastatin, but definitely discuss this with you doctor.

I also take Crestor ( a statin), 20 mg. In addition,to these, I take insulin for diabetes, synthyroid for hypothyroidism, metaprolol and lisinopril for blood pressure, Aspirin ( 320 mg) , and Efient ( 10 mg) as blood thinners to stop any clotting in a new stent on my LAD.
Avatar n tn Beth he upped my dose of generic Sybthroid from 50 to 75. I am not going to take the Crestor for a couple of weeks and see if that helps with the bloating and muscle weakness, tiredness.

I was hoping upping the dose would shrink it again but with a few cysts on it Iam sure he will want to remove it. Is it normal to be having anger issues?
