This drug is only a part of the complete treatment program. In addition to taking Vytorin as prescribed by your doctor, the therapy also needs to be complimented with low-fat diet and regular physical workout. Vytorin reduces LDL cholesterol and triglyceride that can accumulate in the artery walls and block the blood flow. Moreover, this drug also raises the HDL cholesterol that prevents fats from accumulating and blocking the arteries. Approved by many drug regulatory authorities worldwide, this drug is recommended to patients, who cannot control their cholesterol levels by diet and physical activity alone.

After two or more weeks the dosages can be titrated again depending upon the lipid level tests of the patients.

Many Medicare Part D enrollees don't realize that the $1k per month script they fill for a$35 copay tacks the rest of the retail cost into the running total for their tier in the Part D plan. Many reach the donut hole much sooner than they thought possible. After crunching the math, it is apparent to me that the 3 meds I take that total more than 3k per month can be acquired for 90 days at less than the 30day copays in the donut hole. Careful management and knowing what you are truly paying can give big dividends when you balance part D purchases with imported meds. Judy, CA
