Have been on Norvasc (amlodipine) for about 10 years and now they want to change me to caduet even thought my carotid and?

Caduet & Lipitor (atorvastatin) They are two different meds, at least partially. Lipitor is Atorvastatin and Caduet contains Atorvastatin and amlodipine, a medicine used to lower blood pressure. So if you have both hyperlipidemia and hypertension then that may be the med for you, however, if you have hyperlipidemia then use atorvastatin.
