2.What isEZETEC and what is it used for?

EZETEC is a medicine that lowers the total cholesterol level in your blood, bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) and substances called triglycerides. EZETEC additionally raises the level of good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol). It is for patients who cannot keep their cholesterol levels under control by dieting only. While using this medicine, you should also continue on a cholesterol-lowering diet.

EZETEC works by reducing the cholesterol absorbed from your digestive system. EZETEC does not make you lose weight.

EZETEC has an additional effect on drugs called statins that reduce cholesterol produced by your body itself.

EZETEC are white, smooth-surfaced, oblong, unnotched tablets. EZETEC is available in packages of 28 and 84 tablets.
