Frequently asked questions about ezetimibe

Ezetimibe is a prescription medication used to reduce high levels of cholesterol in the blood. It works by blocking the absorption of cholesterol from the intestines, which helps lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels. Additionally, it can help to raise HDL ("good") cholesterol levels.

Ezetimibe is available under the brand name Zetia and comes in the form of a tablet to take by mouth.

Ezetimibe is typically used to treat high cholesterol and certain other lipids in the blood, such as triglycerides. It can also be used in combination with statins or other medications to treat familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), which is a genetic disorder that causes very high levels of cholesterol in the blood.

High cholesterol can damage vital organs, including the heart and brain. Damage to these organs can lead to serious health problems, such as heart attacks and strokes, so proper management of cholesterol is critical. It is typically suggested that ezetimibe be used along with other lifestyle changes such as a low-cholesterol, low-saturated fat diet to keep your cholesterol under control.

Ezetimibe is in a class of medications known as cholesterol absorption inhibitors, which lower cholesterol by preventing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine. This results in lower total cholesterol and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Common side effects of ezetimibe include:

  • headache
  • dizziness
  • diarrhea
  • sore throat
  • runny nose
  • sneezing
  • joint pain

This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are among the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience any of the following symptoms while taking ezetimibe:

  • hives
  • rash
  • itching
  • difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
  • hoarseness
  • upset stomach
  • extreme tiredness
  • unusual bleeding or bruising
  • lack of energy
  • loss of appetite
  • pain in the upper right part of the stomach
  • yellowing of the skin or eyes
  • flu-like symptoms
  • muscle pain or weakness
  • fever
  • chills
  • pale or fatty stools
  • chest pain

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with ezetimibe. Ezetimibe can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with this medication.

Ezetimibe comes in the form of an oral tablet, which is typically taken once per day depending on your diagnosis. However, you should take the medication exactly as your healthcare provider prescribes. Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of ezetimibe without consulting with your provider first. If you begin to experience adverse side effects while taking this medication, like those listed above, inform your provider right away.

Ezetimibe should be stored in a closed container at room temperature, away from extreme heat, extreme cold, moisture, and direct light, and kept out of the reach of children.

Ezetimibe is currently only available via prescription. This means a licensed health care provider must authorize the use of this drug.
