Generic Crestor is called rosuvastatin, which is the same chemical compound used in the brand-name medication. Drug companies that develop prescription medications get patents for these compounds, but those patents can expire. Once they’ve expired, a generic form of the mediation can be approved by the FDA for sale (FDA, 2018).

Rosuvastatin (Crestor) is a statin. Statins are cholesterol-lowering medications that help to lower "bad" cholesterol (called LDL) by blocking cholesterol production in the liver. Statins can also raise "good" cholesterol (called HDL).

In fact, not all medications work the same for all patients, including the generic equivalents. When your doctor prescribes a medication, it is because he/she has decided it is the right one for you. Ask your doctor about continuing on brand-name CRESTOR. Brand-name CRESTOR– manufactured by AstraZeneca—will continue to be readily available.
