US Brand Name
Amlodipine and atorvastatin is a combination of a calcium channel blocker and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor (statin). Amlodipine is used alone or together with other medicines to treat angina (chest pain) or high blood pressure. High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. Maintaining a lower blood pressure can reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
Atorvastatin is used together with a proper diet to lower cholesterol and triglyceride (fats) levels in the blood. This medicine may help prevent medical problems (eg, chest pain, heart attack, or stroke) that are caused by fats clogging the blood vessels. It may also be used to prevent certain types of heart and blood vessel problems in patients with risk factors for heart problems.
This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
