FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs):
Why Vytorin is prescribed?
The two active constituents in Vytorin are Simvastatin (“statin” drug); as well as Ezetimibe (a cholesterol absorption inhibitor). Ezetimibe works by inhibiting the absorption of cholesterol from your small intestine which restricts the content of cholesterol that is consumed from the food products you have in. On the other side, Simvastatin works by decreasing the quantity of cholesterol your liver produces by inhibiting certain enzymes. This activity, in turn, causes your liver to take up a large amount of your bad cholesterol from the blood. Vytorin or generic Ezetimibe/Simvastatin effectively lowers your low-density lipoproteins (LDL), known as your bad cholesterol and your triglycerides so you are less likely to develop atherosclerosis which can lead to a heart attack.
How to use Vytorin?
