DEAR SIR/MADAM

BOTH TABLETS CONTAIN SAME COMPOSITION - ASPIRIN 75 MG AND ATORVASTATIN 10 MG, THERE IS NO MUCH DIFFERENCE IN IT. THE SIDE EFFECTS MAY BE DUE TO CLASS OF DRUGS LIKE
ASPIRIN IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE RISK OF CAUSING PEPTIC ULCER, PROLONGED BLEEDING TIMES SOME TIMES RASHES.
STATINS USUALLY CAUSES MUSCLE CRAMPS AND ACHES. WHICH MIGHT ALSO CAUSE ELEVATION OF LIVER ENZYMES.

IN THIS CASE PATIENT CAN SELECT ANY DRUG MENTIONED IN EIGHTER ONE OF TWO.
