Flowfit CV 20mg/75mg Capsule


Overview

Introduction

Flowfit CV 20mg/75mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines used to prevent heart attack and stroke. This medicine reduces the "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides (fats) levels. Moreover, it also decreases the formation of blood clots. This medicine should be taken with food to avoid stomach upset. Lifestyle changes like low-fat diet, exercise, and not smoking may help this medicine to work better. It may change liver function and blood sugar levels, so monitor them properly. This medicine increases your risk of bleeding, so it is important to be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g. football, wrestling). Stomach pain and constipation are some other common side effects associated with this medicine.

How Flowfit CV Capsule works

Flowfit CV 20mg/75mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Atorvastatin and Clopidogrel, which prevents heart attack and stroke. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks an enzyme required in the body to make cholesterol. It lowers the "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises the "good" cholesterol (HDL). Clopidogrel is an antiplatelet medication which prevents the platelets from sticking together and decreases the formation of harmful blood clots.
