“Bad news continues to buffet the once-blockbuster cholesterol drug ezetimibe, which is sold under the brand name Zetia.”
“Vytorin is a combination of Zetia (ezetimibe) and the statin Zocor (simvastatin).”
“Vytorin combines simvastatin, also sold as Zocor, and ezetimibe, which by itself is sold as Zetia.”
“Backing up research released last year, a new study has found that ezetimibe does not reduce fatty build-ups in the arteries, despite lowering levels of "bad" (LDL) cholesterol in the blood.”
“These findings are another major blow to ezetimibe.”
“When the researchers saw that people taking niacin had notable improvement in their arteries while those taking ezetimibe did not, they decided to stop the study early.”
“In the new study, half the people took ezetimibe and half took an extended-release version of niacin, in addition to their statin.”
“Besides Zetia, you can also get a pill called Vytorin that combines ezetimibe with a statin (the earlier research looked at this combined form).”
“The study also found that people taking ezetimibe were slightly more likely to have died, had a heart attack, or had other serious heart or circulation problems during the study.”
‘ezetimibe’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
