In brief: Probably great
Norvasc is the trade name for amlodipine, which is a blood pressure medicine.
Caduet is the trade name for a combination med that has Atorvastatin (trade name lipitor) and amlodipine in one pill. It is an excellent choice for people with elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and/or risk for heart disease who want to take just one pill. Both amlodipine and Atorvastatin are now generic.
