RosstAacy contains two active substances – rosuvastatin and acetylsalicylic acid.
Rosuvastatin belongs to a group of substances called statins, which are lipid (fat) regulating medicines that are used to lower lipids known as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Cholesterol is a fatty substance (lipid) that can cause the narrowing of blood vessels in the heart causing coronary heart disease. If there is another risk of heart attack, rosuvastatin can also be used to reduce such risk even if cholesterol levels are normal. A standard cholesterol-lowering diet should be followed during treatment.
Acetylsalicylic acid in low doses belongs to a group of medicines called anti-platelet agents. Platelets are tiny cells in the blood that cause the blood to clot and are involved in thrombosis. When a blood clot occurs in an artery it stops the blood flowing and cuts off the oxygen supply. When this happens in the heart it can cause a heart attack or angina.
RosstAacy is indicated in patients who are already taking rosuvastatin and acetylsalicylic acid at these doses. Instead of taking rosuvastatin and acetylsalicylic acid separately you will receive one capsule of RosstAacy which contains both ingredients in the same strength.
