Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name: EZETIMIBE (eh-ZET-eh-mib)

ZETIA is a prescription medication that reduces the level of cholesterol or other sterols that are absorbed by your body from your diet. It works alongside a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet to control high cholesterol. Some physicians may also prescribe ZETIA with other cholesterol-lowering medications to treat high blood sitosterol and campesterol. This medication is intended as part of a treatment program that includes a low-cholesterol diet along with exercise and weight control.

Directions:

ZETIA should be used exactly as prescribed by your physician. Patient should follow the prescription label instructions for safe use. Do not take in excess amounts, or take it for longer than recommended.

Generally, ZETIA is taken once a day, with or without food. It is recommended to take this medication at the same time each day. ZETIA is intended as part of a treatment program that includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.

Do not take ZETIA with:

  • cholestyramine (Prevalite, Questran)
  • colestipol (Colestid)
  • colesevelam (Welchol)
Patients are advised to wait at least 4 hours after taking any of these medicines, before taking ZETIA. Alternately, patients may take ZETIA 2 hours before taking any of these other medication.

ZETIA can be taken with:

  • fenofibrate (Antara, Lipofen, Lofibra, TriCor, Triglide)
  • any of the "statin" drugs (Mevacor, Zocor, Pravachol, Lescol or Lipitor)
The effects of this medication may take up to 2 weeks to realize. For optimal results, continue using ZETIA as directed.

Cautions:

To make sure you can safely use ZETIA, tell your doctor if you have any of these conditions:

  • any allergies to ezetimibe or other chemicals contained in ZETIA
  • liver disease
  • kidney disease
  • thyroid disorder
  • if you use steroid medicine or hormones (including birth control pills)
  • pregnant or breast-feeding
Speak with your doctor about your individual risks and benefits.

Avoid eating foods that are high in fat or cholesterol. ZETIA will not be as effective in lowering your cholesterol if you do not follow a cholesterol-lowering diet plan.

Side Effects:

All medications have side effects and they affect every patient differently. Side effects information will be included with your medication once you pick it up from the pharmacy.

Common side effects include:

  • dizziness
  • headache
  • upset stomach

Great Service
Service is first rate. My only criticism would be it takes 2 weeks to get the order. I hope you would figure out a better and faster way to ship.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
