About Razel CV 20/75 Capsule 10's

Razel CV 20/75 Capsule 10's is a combination drug composed of a blood-thinning agent and cholesterol-lowering agent, primarily used to prevent heart attack and stroke in the future. It lowers the raised level of cholesterol and fats (triglycerides) in our body. A heart attack is a condition in which your coronary arteries (blood vessel supplying blood and oxygen to the heart) becomes blocked due to build-up of fats (plaque) including cholesterol. These plaques narrow the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, mainly for most heart attacks.

Razel CV 20/75 Capsule 10's is composed of two medicines, namely: Rosuvastatin and Clopidogrel. Rosuvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks the enzyme required to make cholesterol in the body. As a result, it lowers the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins or LDL), triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Clopidogrel is a blood thinner (anticoagulant) that collectively prevents a clot in the blood vessels. Together Razel CV 20/75 Capsule 10's reduces the increased levels of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides) and prevents blood clots, thereby reducing and preventing the risk of heart attack, stroke and heart-related chest pain (angina).
