Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I need you to please analyze my lipid profile and liver test, where I can see that a few numbers are at a very high end. Currently, I am taking the following medicines, Rosuvastatin 10 mg one tablet daily, Amlodipine Besylate 5 mg one tablet daily. I am a chain smoker and smoke an average of 20 to 25 cigarettes daily.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your liver enzymes are raised a bit, and lipid profile is deranged a bit, for which you are taking Rosuvastatin. Rosuvastatin may cause the liver function to derange. Since how long are you taking Rosuvastatin or any other lipid-lowering medicine? If the liver function was normal before starting Rosuvastatin and deranged after taking it, I will advise you to continue taking it and re-monitor LFTs (liver function test) after two months. If it rises even more, then stop statin and remeasure levels after two months. If you have muscle pain, fatigue, etc., do creatine kinase levels. Do regular exercise and stop smoking immediately. Follow up after one month.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
