Vytorin

What are Vytorin tablets?

Vytorin is a cholesterol-lowering drug. The active substances in this medicine are simvastatin and ezetimibe. The simvastatin/ezetimibe combination reduces a number of bad fats (LDL cholesterol and triglycerides) and increases the number of good fats (HDL cholesterol) in the blood. You can order Inegy online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.

What are Vytorin tablets used for?

Vytorin reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. The tablets contain two active substances, ezetimibe/simvastatin:

  • Ezetimibe – a medicine that inhibits the uptake of cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract;
  • Simvastatin – a medicine that reduces cholesterol production.

This medication is often used if a cholesterol-lowering drug and/or a cholesterol-lowering diet do not work well enough. Vytorin has a more powerful effect than other medications due to its double action and therefore gives a better result in some people.

How to use Vytorin to lower cholesterol

Take the tablet without chewing it with some fluid. Preferably take the medicine in the evening. If you forgot a tablet, take the usual tablet at the usual time the next day. Never take a double dose to compensate for the forgotten tablet.
