Zetia Drug Information
Ezetimibe is used along with a low cholesterol/low fat diet and exercise to help lower cholesterol in the blood. Ezetimibe may be used alone or with other drugs (such as statins or fibrates). Ezetimibe works by reducing the amount of cholesterol your body absorbs from your diet. Reducing cholesterol may help prevent strokes and heart attacks.
How to Use Zetia
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking ezetimibe and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Zetia by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily with or without food. The Dosage of Zetia is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If taking a bile acid sequestrant (such as cholestyramine, colestipol), take ezetimibe at least 2 hours before or 4 hours after taking the bile acid sequestrant. These products may bind to ezetimibe, preventing your body from fully absorbing the drug. Take Zetia regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. It is important to continue taking Zetia even if you feel well. Most people with high cholesterol do not feel sick. It may take up to 2 weeks before you get the full benefit of Zetia.
Before taking ezetimibe, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Zetia may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Zetia, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Zetia should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Zetia passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Zetia, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.
