What's Ezetrol

Ezetrol is a medicine to lower increased levels of cholesterol. Ezetrol lowers levels of total cholesterol, “bad” cholesterol (LDL cholesterol), and fatty substances called triglycerides in the blood. In addition, Ezetrol raises levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL cholesterol).

Ezetimibe, the active ingredient of Ezetrol works by reducing the cholesterol absorbed in your digestive tract and adds to the cholesterol-lowering effect of statins, a group of medicines that reduce the cholesterol your body makes by itself.

Take Ezetrol at any time of the day. You can take it with or without food.
If your doctor has prescribed Ezetrol along with a statin, both medicines can be taken at the same time. In this case, please read the dosage instructions in the package leaflet of that particular medicine.

If your doctor has prescribed Ezetrol along with another medicine for lowering cholesterol containing the active ingredient colestyramine or any other medicine containing bile acid sequestrant, you should take EZETROL at least 2 hours before or 4 hours after taking the bile acid sequestrant.

Contact your doctor immediately if you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness. This is because on rare occasions, muscle problems, including muscle breakdown resulting in kidney damage, can be serious and may become a potentially life-threatening condition.

Allergic reactions, including swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing (which requires treatment right away) have been reported in general use.

Do not take EZETROL together with a statin if:

  • you currently have liver problems
  • you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Warnings and precautions

  • Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including allergies.
  • Your doctor should do a blood test before you start taking EZETROL with a statin. This is to check how well your liver is working.
  • Your doctor may also want you to have blood tests to check how well your liver is working after you start taking EZETROL with a statin.

If you have moderate or severe liver problems, EZETROL is not recommended.
