Zetia (ezetimibe) is a prescription medication used to treat high cholesterol by limiting cholesterol absorption in the body. It should be taken as part of a holistic approach to lower “bad” cholesterol, which includes a healthy diet and exercise. Zetia does not help you lose weight and should not be treated as part of a weight-loss solution. Zetia has not been tested on children under 10 years old. There is no indication that Zetia is effective in preventing a heart attack or stroke. Zetia should only be used if healthy diet and exercise are not enough to lower “bad” cholesterol.

About Bad Cholesterol
Low-density lipoprotein or LDL cholesterol is called “bad” cholesterol because of how it builds up in your arteries and creates blockages. These blockages significantly increase your risk of heart attack and stroke. This plaque build-up happens naturally, but a poor diet consisting of preserved meats and store-bought baked products, and lack of exercise also contribute to increased bad cholesterol levels.
Not all cholesterol is bad. High-density lipoprotein or “good” cholesterol removes LDL cholesterol from the arteries and carries it back to the liver where it is safely broken down. High amounts of HDL cholesterol are considered healthy and lower the risk of heart disease. A nutrient-rich diet and weekly exercise contribute to increased HDL levels.
Can be taken with or without food. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Take as prescribed. Do not take more Zetia that you need to. Do not take Zetia unless it was prescribed by your doctor. Do not give someone else unprescribed Zetia or any other medications, even if they experience similar symptoms, as it could harm them. Tell your doctor about all other medications you are taking including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, supplements, and herbal remedies. Zetia can interact with certain medications. Continue to eat a low-cholesterol diet and to ask your doctor for nutritional advice.
It’s important to continue taking Zetia until otherwise indicated by your doctor. Schedule regular blood tests with your doctor to determine cholesterol levels. Zetia can be taken alone or with another cholesterol medication.
Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, or thinking of becoming pregnant. You should not take Zetia with another statin medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as this can seriously harm your unborn baby.
Store your medication at room temperature in a cool, dark, dry area. To get the maximum benefit of Zetia, use regularly. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it’s close to your next scheduled dose, skip it. Do not take a double dose to catch up. In the event of an overdose, contact poison control or seek immediate medical attention.
Inactive ingredients include croscarmellose sodium, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, and sodium lauryl sulfate.
Important Health & Safety Information
This is not a complete publication of health and safety information. Consult the product literature or speak to your doctor for more information. According to the official product information:
Do not take Zetia if you are allergic to ezetimibe, the active ingredient in Zetia, or to the inactive ingredients. If you have active liver disease, do not take Zetia while taking cholesterol-lowering medicines called statins. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take Zetia while taking a statin. If you are a woman of childbearing age, you should use an effective method of birth control to prevent pregnancy while using Zetia added to statin therapy.
Possible Side Effects of Zetia
This is not a complete publication of the possible side effects for Zetia. Consult the product literature or speak to your doctor for more information. According to the official product information:
In clinical studies, patients reported few side effects while taking Zetia. These included diarrhea, joint pains, and feeling tired. Patients have experienced severe muscle problems while taking Zetia, usually when Zetia was added to a statin drug. If you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness while taking Zetia, contact your doctor immediately. You need to do this promptly, because, on rare occasions, these muscle problems can be serious, with muscle breakdown resulting in kidney damage. Additionally, the following side effects have been reported in general use: allergic reactions (which may require treatment right away) including swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing, rash, and hives; raised red rash, sometimes with target-shaped lesions; joint pain; muscle aches; alterations in some laboratory blood tests; liver problems; stomach pain; inflammation of the pancreas; nausea; dizziness; tingling sensation; depression; headache; gallstones; inflammation of the gallbladder.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
