Side Effects Of Crestor And Drinking Alcohol While Taking Crestor

Answer

Hi Mari,

Crestor is a medication used to help lower cholesterol. Some possible side effects associated with the medication include headache, dizziness, increased liver enzymes, and muscle pain. You doctor will probably have you get lab work before starting the medication and then routinely while you take the medication to check your liver function. While there isn't an interaction with Crestor and alcohol, I would advise drinking in moderation while taking the medication.

Thanks for your question!

Jill
