In brief: Question not clear

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but if it is whether or not there is a problem taking both Caduet and lipitor, it depends on the doses.
Caduet has 2 medicines, including atorvastatin, which is the generic form of lipitor. So if the two medicines together contain too much lipitor, it might be a problem. She should check with her primary care provider.
