• In a clinical trial versus Lipitor® (atorvastatin calcium), CRESTOR got more high-risk patients' bad
    (LDL) cholesterol to a goal of under 100 mg/dL.*
    Definition of high-risk patients: Patients aged 18 years or older with high cholesterol and a
    history of narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries (coronary heart disease) or evidence of plaque buildup in their arteries that can narrow the arteries over time or a high risk of developing coronary heart disease over the next 10 years.
    *In high-risk patients, per NCEP ATP III
    Treatment Guidelines, bad (LDL) cholesterol goal is <100 mg/dL.
  • Are you at increased risk for plaque
    buildup in your arteries?
    Getting to goal is important, especially if you have
    high cholesterol plus any of these risk factors:
    Diabetes High Blood Pressure Family History of
    Early Heart Disease
    Because you could be at increased risk for plaque buildup over time.
