hi,
You are on a good prescription.
Ecosprin AV contains asprin and atorvastatin. You might be having mild cardiac disease for which you were probably kept on this tablet.
The main side effects of diabetic drugs are hypoglycemia and dyspepsia. Side effects of Ecosprin are burning in stomach, nausea and rarely headache. Statin may cause leg cramps and edema. These are minor and you may continue them.
hope i am clear.
