Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     Atorfen is a combination of Atorvastatin and Fenofibrate given for Dyslipidemia (High Cholesterol, Triglyceride). Your LDL is high – it should be 100 or less. You also need life style modifications like diet & exercise; avoiding tobacco & alcohol...
     Remylin is given for your elevated homo-cysteine levels / It has methylcobalamin, alpha lipoic acid, pyridoxine & folic acid

You may have to take them life long / primary prophylaxis...
Repeat the test after 6 to 8 weeks / Discuss with your doctor

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
