No equivalent: Although not specified, that particular combination of medications is common for patients with a heart attack or stent placement. There are no natural equivalents or even close players for patients with significant heart disease. Red yeast rice sold in the us, although may have a tiny amount of statin, can not have enough of a concentration to provide a clinical benefit, per the fda.
