Zetia Information

Zetia (Generic name: Ezetimibe) is a prescription medication used along with diet to treat high cholesterol. Zetia is either prescribed by itself to lower cholesterol, or in conjunction with statin medications (e.g., Lipitor, Pravachol, Zocor) to maximize cholesterol reduction. Zetia is also used to treat high blood sitosterol and campesterol along with diet therapy. Unlike the more common cholesterol medications called statins which block the enzyme your liver needs to produce cholesterol, Zetia works by reducing the absorption of cholesterol in the digestive tract. Take Zetia exactly as it was prescribed for you.
