What is Ezetimibe?

Ezetimibe is a treatment for high cholesterol , which causes a fatty deposit (lipid) to build up on the walls of the blood vessels.

Your doctor may prescribe ezetimibe alongside a statin medication, such as simvustatin.

Ezetimibe is also available under the brand name Ezetrol.

You can get a private prescription for Ezetimibe online from Prescription Doctor. Simply click the green button and complete our online medical form for one of our doctors to review. If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, our UK pharmacy can dispatch your item the same day via a discreet next-day delivery.

Understanding High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat (lipid) that is made by your body and found in certain types of food. It is necessary for good health, however; a high level of cholesterol can be harmful to you.

High cholesterol develops when a fatty substance, called cholesterol, builds up in your blood vessels. If it is left untreated, it can increase the risk of having a stroke and heart problems.

Along with taking medication like Ezetimibe, you can also help lower your cholesterol by making lifestyle changes.

Regular exercise, dietary changes and stopping smoking, are all things your doctor will usually advise when taking Ezetimibe.

It is recommended to check your cholesterol levels at regular intervals. Spotting the signs of high cholesterol early can help you make appropriate changes to your lifestyle to reduce your risk of developing complications, such as heart disease.

Prescription Doctor offers a fast and simple home testing kit which can give you an indication of your cholesterol levels. When you buy a home cholesterol level test online from Prescription Doctor, our pharmacy will dispatch it via a next-day delivery straight to your door.

How Does Ezetimibe Work?

Ezetimibe works by reducing the cholesterol absorbed in your digestive system.

Before buying treatments for high cholesterol online, you should speak to your doctor for further advice on how you can lower your cholesterol by making appropriate lifestyle changes.

Cholesterol lowering drugs, such as ezetimibe, are more effective when taken alongside a healthy diet low in saturated fats and triglycerides.

How Do I take Ezetimibe?

Always follow the directions on your prescription label and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain anything that you do not understand.

Ezetimibe tablets are usually taken once daily.

Swallow one Ezetimibe tablet whole with a glass of water.

Do not crush or chew Ezetimibe tablets.

You can take Ezetimibe at any time of day. Try to take it around the same time every day to ensure you do not miss a dose.

You may need to continue taking cholesterol lowering drugs indefinitely. This is to prevent your cholesterol levels rising to dangerous levels again.

What Should I Do If I Forget to Take Ezetimibe When I Should?

If you forget to take Ezetimibe when you should, do not take a double dose to make up for it. Just skip the missed dose and take your normal dose of Ezetimibe the next day.

Taking your tablets alongside a meal or setting an alarm on your phone can help to remind you when to take your Ezetimibe.

What Should I Do If I Take Too Much Ezetimibe?

If you take too much Ezetimibe, contact your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible.

Taking more Ezetimibe than prescribed will not lower your cholesterol any faster, but may increase your risk of side effects.
