From http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2005/21366slr005lbl.pdf

Excretion: Following oral administration, rosuvastatin and its metabolites are primarily excreted in the feces (90%). The elimination half-life (t1/2) of rosuvastatin is approximately 19 hours.

5mg/day is a low dose anyway.
