How Atorin N Tablet works

Atorin N 10 mg/375 mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Atorvastatin and Vitamin B3(Nicotinic Acid) which treat high cholesterol. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication (statin). It works by blocking an enzyme (HMG-CoA-reductase) that is required in the body to make cholesterol. It thus lowers "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises "good" cholesterol (HDL). Vitamin B3(Nicotinic Acid) is a form of vitamin B which further raises the levels of "good cholesterol" (HDL).

Hi PATIENT to 1mgdoctors. Recanter is an antibiotics and will help with infections but will not have any effect on the periods as such. However if the infections is the cause of decreased bleeding during menses, it might improve indirectly. But this medicine does not affect the periods as such.
