This combined medication is prescribed in conjunction with a balanced diet to aid in the reduction of “bad” cholesterol, specifically low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Ezetimibe functions by decreasing the absorption of cholesterol from the diet, thereby reducing the overall cholesterol intake by the body. Rosuvastatin belongs to the statin class of drugs and works by lowering the production of cholesterol in the liver. To optimize the effectiveness of this medication, implement additional lifestyle changes, including adhering to a proper diet that is low in cholesterol and fat.

Uses and Dosage

Follow your doctor’s instructions and take this medication orally, with or without food, typically once daily. Ensure you swallow the tablets whole and do not crush, chew, or dissolve them.

The prescribed dosage is determined by factors such as your medical condition, response to treatment, race, and concurrent medications. Inform your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products.

If you are of Asian descent, your doctor might advise starting with a lower dose due to potential increased sensitivity to the medication.

If you are also taking a bile acid sequestrant (such as cholestyramine or colestipol), schedule the intake of this product at least 2 hours before or 4 hours after the bile acid sequestrant. These medications may bind to ezetimibe/rosuvastatin, hindering full absorption.

Antacids containing aluminum and magnesium can reduce the absorption of this drug. If using such an antacid, take it at least 2 hours after taking this medication.

For optimal benefits, take this medication regularly at the same time each day. Continue taking it even if you feel well, as individuals with high cholesterol often do not experience noticeable symptoms.

It is crucial to adhere to your doctor’s advice regarding diet and exercise. The full benefits of this product may take up to 4 weeks to become evident.
