About ROSUVASTATIN+CLOPIDOGREL+ASPIRIN

ASPIRIN+CLOPIDOGREL+ROSUVASTATIN belongs to a group of antihyperlipidemic and antiplatelets used to treat heart attack, myocardial infarction (blockage of the blood to muscles of the heart), angina (chest pain), and stroke. A heart attack happens when the blood flow to the heart is blocked. The blockage is most often a build-up of cholesterol, fat, and other substances, which form a plaque (semi-hard accumulation of substance from fluid) in the arteries that supply to the heart. Sometimes, a plaque can burst, forming a clot that blocks blood flow. Symptoms of a heart attack include chest pain, tightness in the chest, and pain in the neck, arm, or back.

ASPIRIN+CLOPIDOGREL+ROSUVASTATIN is a fixed-dose combination composed of three medicines: Rosuvastatin, Clopidogrel, and Aspirin. Rosuvastatin belongs to a group of drugs known as antihyperlipidemic.
