Atorvastatin is statin-class drug commonly prescribed for the treatment of dyslipidemias and for the prevention of ischemic cardiovascular events. It works by inhibiting hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, a key enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. Inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase decreases hepatic cholesterol synthesis, increases hepatic cholesterol re-uptake, and decreases serum cholesterol levels.
Lisinopril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure. It acts by inhibiting the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, lowering serum levels of the vasopressor hormone angiotenin II. Decreased angiotensin II receptor stimulation also decreases adrenal secretion of aldosterone.
