Ezetimibe - Overview
Ezetimibe is a medication used in the management of high cholesterol. People in need of an ezetimibe prescription or refill can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe ezetimibe medication, including generic ezetimibe 10 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
Ezetimibe - Mechanism of Action
Ezetimibe prescription medication, sometimes marketed under the brand Zetia, is sometimes prescribed to patients as adjunctive therapy to diet or in combination with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors like atorvastatin (Lipitor), pitavastatin (Livalo), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor) or medications like fenofibrate (Tricor) to help reduce total-C, LDL-C and Apo B levels. Ezetimibe targets a special sterol transporter in the body that is important in the absorption of cholesterol from the intestines. Ezetimibe blocks cholesterol absorption, reducing body stores and increasing the clearance of cholesterol levels from the blood with reported beneficial effects on the risk of CVD endpoints. Ezetimibe prescription medication is also used in combination with the drug simvastatin as the medication Vytorin and in combination with bempedoic acid in Nexlizet.
Ezetimibe - Cost and Dosage
Ezetimibe medication costs approximately 30 cents per ezetimibe 10mg tablet at a number of pharmacies. Some insurance plans will also cover the costs associated with an ezetimibe medication prescription and ezetimibe coupons may also be available online. Ezetimibe typically reaches peak concentrations in the plasma within 12 hours and is highly bound to proteins. Once in the body, ezetimibe is metabolized by the liver and small intestine and has a half life of roughly 22 hours. The majority of ezetimibe ingested is excreted in the feces although some can be found in the urine. Before using ezetimibe prescription tablets, a special diet is recommended. Many patients are started on ezetimibe 10mg once daily with or without food. Ezetimibe tablets should be stored at 25° C.
Can I Buy Ezetimibe Online?
Ezetimibe is a medication that requires a prescription from a medical provider before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy. One cannot just buy ezetimibe online without first getting evaluated by a provider to get an ezetimibe tablet prescription. As a result, ezetimibe OTC (over the counter) is not available online, either. Push Health can help people who need an ezetimibe prescription connect with a medical provider who can prescribe ezetimibe tablets, including generic ezetimibe 10 mg medication, when appropriate to do so.
Ezetimibe - Side Effects
Ezetimibe prescription medication, like other medications, can cause side effects when used. More commonly reported side effects after ezetimibe use include fatigue, body aches, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and pharyngitis symptoms. Ezetimibe tablets should generally not be used by people with liver disease. People who have had a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to ezetimibe medication or any of the tablet ingredients should not use the medication. Ezetimibe tablets and alcohol should not be used together. Prior to using ezetimibe prescription medication, it is important that patients discuss possible side effects related to ezetimibe medication use with a pharmacist.
