What is Ezetrol?

Ezetrol is a type of mediation which lowers the level of cholesterol in adults. It specifically lowers the levels of LDL cholesterol, known as “bad” cholesterol and it raises levels of HDL cholesterol, known as “good” cholesterol.

Ezetrol may be prescribed alongside another cholesterol lowering drug called a statin, such as simvastatin or pravastatin. All cholesterol lowering drugs are more effective when taken with a healthy diet low in saturated fats and triglycerides.


What is High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat (lipid), which is made by your liver and found in certain types of food. Cholesterol is necessary for good health however, high levels of cholesterol can cause health problems.

High cholesterol is caused when you have too much of a fatty substance called cholesterol in your body. When you have high levels of cholesterol in your bloodstream it can build up in your blood vessel walls, causing blockages. This can lead to serious health problems if left untreated, such as an increased risk of having a stroke and heart problems.

You can buy Ezetrol online, however you should always speak to your doctor before taking new medication. Furthermore, your doctor will be able to advise you on the healthy lifestyle changes you will need to make to help lower your cholesterol.


How does Ezetrol work?

Ezetrol contains ezetimibe, which is a cholesterol absorption inhibitor. It works by stopping cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream via the small intestine. It also blocks cholesterol from the bile duct, that is released into the intestine, from being reabsorbed back into the bloodstream. By taking Ezetrol the levels of cholesterol in your bloodstream will reduce.

Ezetrol tablets are usually taken once daily. You swallow one tablet whole with a glass of water and you can choose to either take it with or without food.

Before taking Ezetrol, make sure you familiarise yourself with the patient information leaflet which comes enclosed with your treatment.
