How Atormac CV10 Capsule works

Atormac CV10 Capsule contains – Atorvastatin, Clopidogrel

Atorvastatin reduces plasma cholesterol and lipoprotein levels by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol synthesis in the liver and by increasing the number of LDL receptors on liver cells to enhance LDL uptake and breakdown.

Clopidogrel binds to adenosine diphosphate ADP receptors on the surface of activated platelets. This action blocks ADP, which deactivates nearby glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptors and prevents fibrinogen from attaching to receptors. Without fibrinogen, platelets can’t aggregate and form thrombi.
