How it works
Rozuxia F (10/67 mg) Tablet is a combination of Rosuvastatin and Fenofibrate. Rosuvastatin reduces the production of cholesterol from the liver. Fenofibrate works by increasing the natural lipid (fat) breakdown process with the help of an enzyme. This removes the bad cholesterol and triglycerides from your blood and increases the levels of good cholesterol.
