Atorvastatin/perindopril/amlodipine is a combination medicine used to treat high blood pressure and high cholesterol or heart disease.[2][3] It may reduce the risk of heart disease by nearly 50%.[3] The benefit of a single pill is people are more willing to take it.[3] It is taken by mouth.[2]

Side effects are those of the individual components and generally few.[3] The perindopril may decrease the leg swelling caused by the amlodipine.[3] It is a combination of atorvastatin, a statin; perindopril, an ACE inhibitor; and amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker.[3]

The combination is approved in many European countries as of 2021.[1] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.[4] It is a type of polypill.[3] It is expected that the combination medication will be less expensive than the individual components, but this may vary by country.[5][6] In Mauritius a month of medication costs about 26 USD in 2020.[6]
