    kristysmith,

     

    Thanks for your question. 

     

    Zetia is a lipid lowering agent that is manufactured by the Schering-Plough Corporation.  Unlike statin medications that work in the liver, Zetia's action takes place in the intestine and blocks the absorption of cholesterol from the gastrointestinal tract.  This results in a lower level of cholesterol circulating in the bloodstream.

     

    I hope this has been helpful.

     

    Martin Cane, M.D.

    Who is the manufacturer of Zetia?  Do they have any help available for unemployed customers who need their help?
