Yes it's so.
There is no steroid in rosutor A 10/75 cap and you can take steroids if prescribed by a doctor Rosutor-A 10mg/75mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Rosuvastatin and Aspirin / Acetylsalicylic acid which prevent heart attack and stroke. Rosuvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks an enzyme required in the body to make cholesterol. It lowers the "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises the "good" cholesterol (HDL). Aspirin / Acetylsalicylic acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-platelet action. It prevents the platelets from sticking together and decreases the formation of harmful blood clots.
