ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULE is a combination of Clopidogrel and Rosuvastatin which belongs to theroup of medicines called Antiplatelets and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors respectively. ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULE is indicated for the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases such as acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction (also known as a heart attack), angina (chest pain due to inadequate blood supply to the heart) and stroke (reduced blood supply to the brain leading to brain death), among patients with elevated cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels along with a suitable diet, exercise and weight management regimen.
An acute coronary syndrome is a heart condition caused by plaque rupture or clot formation in the coronary arteries. Symptoms include heart attack, chest pressure or pain while at rest, shortness of breath and sweating.
During and prior to treatment with ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULE, your doctor would recommend several blood tests to check your liver function.
ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULEenerally increases your tendency to bleed and so if you cut or injure yourself, it may take a little longer for the bleeding to stop. Bleeding for minor injuries like small cut or shaving is of no concern.

HOW ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULE WORKS
ROSCAD CV 5 CAPSULE reduces the risk of heart problems, where clopidogrel acts by irreversibly inhibiting the aggregation of platelet in the coronary arteries and rosuvastatin acts by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase which is responsible for catalyzing cholesterol biosynthesis in the body, thus reducing the chances of plaque formation/blood clots in the coronary arteries leading to the prevention of fatal cardiac outcomes.
