Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Total Cholesterol (TC), High Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (HDL-C), Low Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (LDL-C) and Triglycerides (TG) Levels From Baseline to Week-6 [ Time Frame: Baseline,6 weeks ]
    Mean Absolute change in lipid profile parameters (TC, HDL-C, LDL-C and TG) calculated by the mean level for each parameter at week 6 minus the mean level at baseline.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving Total Cholesterol (TC), Low Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (LDL-C), High Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (HDL-C) and Triglycerides (TG) Predefined Target Lipid Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 weeks ]
    The percentage of participants who achieved the following predefined lipid target levels at Baseline and at 6 months: TC <200 mg/dL, LDL-C <100 mg/dL, HDL-C >=60 mg/dL and TG < 150 mg/dL.
