Difference between Brand & Generic?

How much does Ezetimibe cost?

The price of Ezetimibe 10mg is based on whether you are ordering brand name Zetia or the generic alternative Ezetimibe. Buying Generic Zetia can help you to save money and you can also make great savings by buying a 90 day supply of your medication at one time. It is quick, safe and inexpensive to buy medications online with Canadian Med Center. 

What is Zetia?

Zetia (Ezetimibe) is used together with lifestyle changes (diet, weight-loss, exercise) to reduce the amount of cholesterol (a fat-like substance) and other fatty substances in the blood. It may be used alone or in combination with an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor (statin). Ezetimibe is in a class of medications called cholesterol-lowering medications. It works by preventing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine. The buildup of cholesterol and fats along the walls of the blood vessels (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow, which decreases the oxygen supply to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body. Lowering blood levels of cholesterol and fats may help reduce this buildup and may decrease your chances of developing heart conditions such as angina (chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks. Results of a clinical study that compared people who took ezetimibe and simvastatin with people who took simvastatin alone found that although the group of people taking ezetimibe and simvastatin had lower amounts of cholesterol in the blood, there was no difference between the two groups in the amount of cholesterol and fat buildup on the insides of the blood vessels in the neck. It is not currently understood why the additional lowering of cholesterol levels in the blood did not lead to a greater decrease in cholesterol and fat buildup along the walls of the blood vessels in people taking ezetimibe and simvastatin. Further studies are underway to compare treatment with ezetimibe and simvastatin to treatment with simvastatin alone to see if there is a difference in the risk of developing heart disease. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about the risks and benefits of treating increased amounts of cholesterol in your blood with ezetimibe and other medications. In addition to taking a cholesterol-lowering medication, making certain changes in your daily habits can also lower your blood cholesterol levels. You should eat a diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol; exercise 30 minutes on most, if not all, days; and lose weight if you are overweight. Zetia the Brand name and its generic alternative Ezetimibe are both available for purchase. 

Ezetimibe comes as a tablet to take by mouth. Zetia 10mg is usually taken once a day with or without food. To help you remember to take ezetimibe, take it around the same time every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take ezetimibe exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Continue to take ezetimibe even if you feel well. Do not stop taking ezetimibe without talking to your doctor.

Cautions

Before taking ezetimibe,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to ezetimibe or any other medications
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: anticoagulants (''blood thinners'') such as warfarin (Coumadin); cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune); fenofibrate (TriCor); and gemfibrozil (Lopid). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
  • if you are taking other cholesterol medication such as cholestyramine (Questran), colesevelam (WellChol), or colestipol (Colestid), take it 4 hours before or 2 hours after ezetimibe.
  • tell your doctor if you have or have ever had liver disease.
  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking ezetimibe, call your doctor as soon as possible.

If your condition doesn’t improve or worsens, let your physician know immediately.

Everyone I have ever talked to there has been topnotch.Always ready to help, polite and knowledgeable. The only thing I would recommend is to put the price of the medicine on the form that says what it is. It makes it easier at tax time to calculate how Much I spent throughout the year.
