Ezetimibe Tablets are used to lower increased levels of cholesterol.
Cholesterol is one of several fatty substances found in the blood stream. It serves essential functions in the body; however, build-up of “bad” cholesterol can lead to a narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing can slow or block blood flow to vital organs, potentially leading to a heart attack or stroke.
Ezetimibe Tablets are for patients who cannot control their cholesterol levels by cholesterol lowering diet alone. However, you should stay on this diet whilst taking this medicine.
We strongly recommend that you first consult with a doctor or pharmacist before using Ezetimibe Tablets. This is so you can ensure that you receive effective treatment for your condition.
High cholesterol is when you have too much of a fatty substance called cholesterol in your blood. Although high cholesterol itself does not have any symptoms, it can lead to an increased risk of serious health problems such as buildup in the blood vessels, heart issues, and strokes.
It is mainly caused by eating fatty foods, not exercising enough, being overweight, smoking and drinking alcohol. However, it can also run in families.
Before using or buying Ezetimibe Tablets to treat high cholesterol, we advise that you consult your doctor or prescriber to ensure your treatment is both safe and effective in managing your condition.
