What is Creslip (Telmisartan/Atorvastatin) used for?
Creslip (Telmisartan/Atorvastatin) is used for the treatment of high cholesterol levels. It has two medications which work together to raise levels of "good" cholesterol (High-density lipoproteins or HDL) and lower levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) while reducing blood pressure. Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that widens blood vessels to increase blood circulation. Atorvastatin reduces cholesterol production in the liver. By reducing cholesterol levels and increasing blood circulation, Creslip is a very effective treatment for patients at high risk for conditions related to high cholesterol.
