Thanks for posting your query.
As you are an already known case of heart disease, you should be labeled as high risk patients.
Treatment of dyslipidemia is decided by LDL.
For a high risk patient, LDL must be below 100 mg% and the best is to keep it below 70 mg%.
You should take Ecosprin -AV as advised by your treating doctor.
Ecosprin AV is the combination of ecosprin and Lipicure except the dosed of aaspirin is reduced to 75 mg.
Blood pressure control is mandatory and this can be better judged by your treating doctor.
You should continue the same medicines as prescribed by doctor.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
