Actual Rxreport™ Case
Jordan is a 50 year old man who suffered from high cholesterol. As a result, his doctor prescribed him rosuvastatin (Crestor). Jordan’s cholesterol did not reduce with the standard dose of Crestor, so his doctor increased his dose. One and a half weeks later Jordan started to experience muscle pains in his feet and legs, which became unbearable. His life style slowed down to a halt and he started to become more and more absent from work.
How RxReport™ Helped
Luckily, Jordan ordered his RxReport™ drug compatibility test for Crestor right away. It was determined that Jordan was an atypical responder to Crestor. The RxReport™ results alerted his doctor to use Simvastatin instead of Crestor.
After the medication switch, Jordan had a significant reduction in cholesterol and was not experiencing pain anymore.
