    Aspirin Aspirin (also called acetyl salicylic acid, ASA) is an analgesic agent, used to relieve moderate to severe pain, such as headache, migraine, nerve pain, toothache, sore throat, joint pain, dysmenorrhea (pain during periods) and heart attack.

Rosuvastatin is used to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, or other heart complications in the patients who are at an increased risk.

    Mode of drug action


    Aspirin Aspirin blocks the cyclooxygenase enzyme, which decreases the production of two chemicals- prostaglandins and thromboxanes. Low levels of prostaglandin bring about pain relief. Low thromboxane levels results in thinning of blood, therefore, its long-term use helps to prevent heart attack and stroke. Rosuvastatin Rosuvastatin belongs to the class of lipid-lowering agents (statins). It works by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, the enzyme used in cholesterol synthesis. It enhances the catabolism of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and thus lowers the blood lipid levels. Rosuvastatin medication also increases the levels of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol).
