How Clopitorva Capsule works

Clopitorva 20 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.
