Rosuvastatin has a half-life of 17 hours. That means it takes 17 hours for half of the medication to be excreted/neutralized/metabolized. So that allows us to give Crestor every other day, or even 3 times per week. Very low doses of rosuvastatin have a positive impact on inflammation. We routinely give 5 or even 2.5 mg. If the inflammatory markers are low, and there are no unusual cholesterol problems, we can even go to 3 times per week dosage. Brad Bale and Amy Doneen have even reported decreases in inflammation from having some intolerant patients LICK the tablet three times/week. And yes, lower doses are good. They mean lower side effects. — Read more about statins here: https://prevmedhealth.com/stopping-statins-is-it-safe. — ABOUT DR. BREWER Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many preventable heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. While there, he went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has close to 1,000 primary care/prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, and stroke prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack, stroke, and cognitive decline. We serve patients who have already experienced an event as well as those who have not developed a diagnosis or event. Dr. Brewer provides services via telemedicine or in person if you’re in the Lexington, KY area. We find a lot of undiagnosed prediabetes or insulin resistance. Treating unrecognized risk factors like prediabetes allows reduction of risk and prevention of disease.
