      What is Rosuvastatin

      Safe & Substantial Savings on Generic Drugs

      Rosuvastatin is a cholesterol-lowering medication, which is available in the doses of 5mg, 10mg, 20mg and 40mg. This medicine works by blocking the production of cholesterol in the body. Reducing cholesterol helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. Rosuvastatin reduces bad cholesterol levels (low-density lipoprotein, LDL), but increases good cholesterol levels (high-density lipoprotein, HDL). This medicine may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. Read More>>

    I have been on this combination for the last 5 years and lately, I've experienced a lack of libido. I am 53 yrs old and is this associated with the combination as its side effect? Reply

    Hi, The common side effects of Rosuvastatin-fenofibrate are Headache, dizziness, constipation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, myalgia, chest pain, peripheral oedema, depression, insomnia, rash, paraesthesia, proteinuria and asthenia. But Libido is not listed as side-effects of Rosuvastatin-Fenofibrate. So regarding this I would suggest you to please consult your physician.
