How Zetia helps to reduce cholesterol

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 10:26 am

Cholesterol, particularly “bad” LDL cholesterol, stimulates clogged arteries, intensifying the risk of heart attack and stroke. “Good” HDL cholesterol helps to impede clogged arteries. Zetia, which is available to purchase at our online Canadian pharmacy, lowers the bad cholesterol and raises the good. It also reduces total cholesterol readings and decreases levels of fats in the blood (triglycerides).

Before using this medicine, tell your doctor about any of the following:

  • if you are pregnant
  • plan on becoming pregnant, or are breastfeeding
  • if you are taking or planning to take any prescription or nonprescription medicine
  • if you have any other medical condition
  • if you are allergic to any ingredient in this medicine or to similar drugs

What important information do I need to know before taking ZETIA

Doctors normally prescribe cholesterol lowering medications only if changes in lifestyle have been unsuccessful to bring cholesterol down to a normal level. These changes involve a diet low in fat and cholesterol and high in fiber, losing excess weight, and becoming more active. It’s important to remember that drug therapy is a supplement to—not a substitute for—these other measures. To get the full advantage of the medication, you need to follow the diet and exercise program recommended by your doctor.

It is important to tell your doctor if you have/are:

  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Respiratory problems
  • If you are taking another cholesterol lowering medication
  • Diabetes
  • Overactive thyroid
  • If you take steroid medications or hormones (including birth control pills)

What are the side effects of Zetia

Most severe: Upper respiratory infection, fatigue.

Most common: Abdominal pain, back pain, diarrhea, joint pain, sinusitis, dizziness, headaches.
