About AT-Asp 75 Tablet 10's

AT-Asp 75 Tablet 10's is a combination drug of blood-thinning agents and cholesterol-lowering agents, primarily taken for the prevention of heart attack and stroke. It also lowers the raised level of bad cholesterol (especially those who are at high risk of heart diseases). A heart attack generally refers to a blocked flow of blood to the heart due to the blockage of arteries. The blockage is most often a build-up of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries).

AT-Asp 75 Tablet 10's is composed of two medicines namely: Atorvastatin and Aspirin. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication which blocks the enzyme required to make cholesterol in the body. It reduces the bad cholesterol (also known as low-density lipoproteins or LDL), and triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (also known as high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Aspirin is a blood thinner or anti-platelet (anticoagulant) that collectively prevent the formation of clot in the blood vessels. Together AT-Asp 75 Tablet 10's help to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and heart-related chest pain (angina). Additionally, it is also given to the patients who had a recent heart bypass surgery (CABG) to control the level of cholesterol and prevent blood clots.
