The Crestor listed on is the authentic, brand-name Crestor.

Crestor (rosuvastatin) is a prescription medication that reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL). 

Crestor is a registered trademark of AstraZeneca. Brand-name Crestor sold in the U.S., is a product made in Germany and the UK, manufactured by a company called CordenPharma GmbH.

Many medications are manufactured and distributed by multinational drug companies with facilities throughout the world. The key to getting "real" brand-name Crestor is to buy it from a licensed pharmacy, whether that's in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., or India.

Currently, 30 tablets of Crestor 10 mg can cost you as much as $175 ($5.83 per pill) at your local U.S. pharmacy—and that's with a coupon. You can find brand-name Crestor 10 mg for $0.27/pill when comparing prices on That's over a 95% savings.

Medications sold outside the United States—except for the labeling, which will almost always be different—are the exact same or foreign versions of the ones sold here. Medications that are produced lawfully, under government regulations, such as those mandated by the European Medicines Agency, Therapeutic Products Directorate, a division of Health Canada, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are determined to be safe and effective. 

The U.S. recognizes 25 countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, as having regulatory oversight as well as pharmaceutical regulatory systems comparable in sophistication and stringency to that of the U.S. This is premise widely supported by the FDA and the American pharmaceutical industry.

If you're buying Crestor online, especially internationally, make sure it's from a pharmacy verified by PharmacyChecker.
