Aspirin + Atorvastatin

ANTIPLATELET/HYPOLIPIDEMIC DRUGS

Uses of Aspirin + Atorvastatin

  • Aspirin + Atorvastatin combines two antilipemic medicines used to manage hyperlipidemia, effectively regulating elevated blood lipid levels and averting blood clot formation. This combination enhances overall blood circulation, mitigating the long-term risk of heart-related issues.
  • It serves as replacement therapy for adult patients effectively managed with both components (aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and atorvastatin) concurrently at equivalent doses. This aims to minimise the risk of experiencing a cardiovascular event, particularly in individuals who have previously endured such incidents.

Side effects of Aspirin + Atorvastatin

  • Headache 
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation 
  • Flatulence 

How Aspirin + Atorvastatin works

  • Aspirin is classified as an antiplatelet agent, exerting its effects by inhibiting platelet aggregation and mitigating the risk of thrombus formation.
  • Atorvastatin is categorised as a statin, a class of lipid-regulating medications designed to lower circulating levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. It is prescribed when dietary and lifestyle modifications prove insufficient in achieving lipid control. Additionally, for individuals at an elevated risk of heart disease, atorvastatin may be utilised to proactively mitigate such risks, even in the presence of normal cholesterol levels.
