Hello,

Nikoran(Nicorandil) 5mg is coronary dilator and is given for prevention of angina. Storvas (Atorvastatin) is given to lower cholesterol level as secondary prevention of restenosis.

Seroflo (Fluticasone propionate 250 mcg+ Salmeterol 25 mcg)is given to relieve shortness of breath-exactly not for a heart condition but for any associated asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Clopivas AP 75mg (Clopidrogel 75 mg and aspirin 75 mg) are anti-platelet drugs or blood thinners again given for secondary prevention.

Combined treatment with clopidogrel and aspirin for at least a year is recommended in patients with acute coronary syndrome treated with revascularisation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
