ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE belongs to the class of medicines called antilipemic (lipid-lowering medicines) primarily used in the treatment of high lipid levels (cholesterol and triglycerides levels) and prevention of heart diseases and blood vessel blockage. Hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia is a condition in which there is a high level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol and a decreased level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol. Increased level of bad cholesterol leads to a high risk of heart attack and stroke in the future, especially in patients with heart disease. 

ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE is composed of two medicines, namely: Atorvastatin (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) and Fenofibrate (fibrates). Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase required to make cholesterol in the body. As a result, it lowers the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins or LDL), and triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Fenofibrate is another lipid-lowering agent which works by increasing the natural substance (lipoprotein lipase) that breaks down fats in the bloodstream thereby increasing its utilization and removal. As a result, it decreases harmful cholesterol like LDL (bad cholesterol), and triglycerides (TG) and increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol). 

Take ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE as prescribed. Your doctor will advise how often you take ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience allergic reactions, hyperglycemia (excess of glucose in the bloodstream), headache, blurred vision, stomach pain, constipation, headaches, joint swelling (edema), joint pain, muscle pain, back pain, slow heart rate, and nausea. Most of these side effects of ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

If you are allergic to ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE or any component present in it namely atorvastatin or fenofibrate, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have hypothyroidism, drink more than 2 servings of alcohol per day, and have a muscle disorder (fibromyalgia) it is advised to inform your doctor before using ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE. ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE is not recommended for children below  12 years of age, as the safety and effectiveness were not established. If you experience yellowing of the skin (Jaundice), allergic reaction, cramps, or muscle weakness then immediately contact your doctor.

Medicinal Benefits

ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE taken with dietary measures helps in the treatment of high cholesterol and prevention of life-threatening conditions to the heart, especially for heart patients when initial dietary measures fail to lower cholesterol. It helps in lowering the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increases the level of good cholesterol (HDL) in the state of dyslipidemia or hyperlipidemia. ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE also lowers the amount of fat or cholesterol deposition (plaque) in the arteries of the heart thereby reducing the chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the future.

Take ATORVASTATIN+FENOFIBRATE with or without food as advised by the doctor. Swallow it as a whole with a glass of water. Do not break, chew or crush it.

    • Try to adopt a Mediterranean-style diet rich in olive oil, fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and fish, and lower the consumption of red meat.
    • Try to give priority to more fruits and veggies in your daily meal as these contain antioxidants that help to lower LDL.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    The cholesterol in blood comes from two sources: the foods you eat and the liver. The liver makes all the cholesterol that is essential for healthy cell membranes, brain functioning, hormone production, and vitamin storage. Excess cholesterol is bad for health. There are two types of cholesterol namely 'bad cholesterol' and 'good cholesterol. Bad cholesterol comprises low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and triglycerides (TG) while good cholesterol consists of high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Usually, there are no specific symptoms of raised or high levels of cholesterol but a large deposition of cholesterol in the arteries (plaque) of the heart. Blocked artery or plaque formation in the arteries of the heart can lead to chest pain, heart attack, or stroke.
