at morning… Doctor, I ask for enlightenment from the opinions of the 2 different neurologists I visited. One doctor prescribed cpg and the other clopidogrel. In terms of price, it is far but what is expensive has better properties? Another doctor, with a total cholesterol of 139, triglycerides 85, hdl 37 and ldl 85, one doctor said simvastatin had to stop but the other gave 5 mg for stabilization. I am confused about why I have a different opinion, because of that, I ask for the doctor’s help to be able to provide enlightenment. thanks

Hello

In principle, the CPG drug that you are referring to also contains the active substance clopidogrel. This means that the content of the two drugs is the same, which functions as an anti-platelet aggregation which is usually used in stroke patients and coronary heart disease. Generally what is different is the brand or maybe one patent drug and the other is generic. As additional information, patent and generic drugs are actually equally effective in terms of efficacy. So it's a mistake to think that generic drugs are not as effective as patent medicines.

From the results of your lipid (fat) profile examination, in general, the results show normal. Normal total cholesterol levels are < 200 mg/dL, HDL > 40 mg/dL, and triglycerides <150 mg/dL (optimally 100 mg/dL). For LDL itself or what is often known as "bad fat" has its own value criteria because it is a benchmark for the use of anti-cholesterol drugs. In individuals with a history of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome, the LDL target is <70 mg/dL. For those at high risk (for example, having a family history of heart disease, unhealthy lifestyle, etc.) the LDL target is <100 mg/dL, while those with low risk are <130 mg/dL. Regarding the difference in clinical opinion of the doctors who examined you, of course they have their own considerations that were found during the examination or seeing the course of your previous illness. If you are wiser about this, you can consult the doctors concerned.
