Ezetimibe/Rosuvastatin Calcium

What is Rosuvastatin-Ezetimibe used for?

This combination medication is used along with a proper diet to help lower "bad" cholesterol (such as LDL). Ezetimibe works by reducing the amount of cholesterol your body absorbs from your diet. Rosuvastatin belongs to a group of drugs known as "statins." It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help this medication work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking. Consult your doctor for more details. Lowering "bad" cholesterol and triglycerides and raising "good" cholesterol decreases the risk of heart disease and helps prevent strokes and heart attacks.
