The treatment of cardiovascular diseases continues to be an important public health problem. Antihypertensive, lipid-lowering, anti-diabetic and antiplatelet therapies are intended to significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular complications and fatal events. In real clinical practice, however, the effectiveness of the preventive measures is insufficient. Despite the availability of new drugs, the treatment of cardiovascular diseases remains suboptimal. The high prevalence of people with multiple risk factors requires the use of treatment tactics based on a combination of drugs against various risk factors. Simplification of treatment regimen, the use of fixed-dose combinations, is one of the facets of increasing treatment adherence, which causes an increase in the effectiveness of long-term therapy.
