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.

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