Zetia (Ezetimibe) reduces the amount of cholesterol that your body absorbs from your diet. Zetia is used to treat high cholesterol, along with a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. It is sometimes combined with other cholesterol-lowering medications. Unlike “statins” Ezetimibe works in the digestive tract rather than the liver. It is used along with a healthy diet and exercise regime. The recommended dosage is 10mg once daily or as directed by your doctor.
We currently have the brand Ezetrol manufactured by Merck. The generic Ezetimibe is manufactured by Lupin (also called Ezedoc) in India and by Mint in Canada. Zetia is available in tablet form and 10 mg strength.
Zetia Side Effects
Contact your doctor if you experience the following side effects and are becoming bothersome or severe.
• Back pain;
• Joint pain;

Do not take Zetia if you are allergic to Ezetimibe of if you have liver disease. In rare cases, cholesterol-lowering medication can cause a condition that result in the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue. This condition can lead to kidney failure. Contact your doctor immediately if you have unexplained muscle pain or tenderness, muscle weakness, fever or flu symptoms, and dark colored urine. It is unknown whether Zetia is harmful to an unborn baby. Before you start taking this medication, inform your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. It is unknown whether Ezetimibe passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby.
The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
