About Remetor CV 10 Capsule 10's

Remetor CV 10 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 occurs when 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.

Remetor CV 10 Capsule 10's is composed of two medicines, namely: Atorvastatin and Clopidogrel. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication which 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 Remetor CV 10 Capsule 10's reduces the increased levels of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides) and prevents blood clot, thereby reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke and heart-related chest pain (angina).
