Zetia, which is generically known as Ezetimibe, is a drug meant to lower cholesterol. It is manufactured and marketed by Merck and Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals, which is also a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc. Zetia has been very controversial because its efficacy has been convincingly questioned. In 2008, two clinical trials reported that Zetia might actually make matters worse. For example, the condition of artery wall thickness gets worse as a result of this drug, and other issues, such as the probability of major coronary events, do not improve.

Even though these studies have shown that Zetia should not be used in any condition except as a last resort, Merck and Shering-Plough have not issued any recall, or for that matter any warnings about the potential uselessness of this drug. Furthermore, Zetia side effects might include serious liver damage.

Zetia side effects include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Growth of Plaque in Arteries

  • Cardiovascular Events

  • Gasto-Intestinal Disturbances

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

  • Mylgia

  • Arthralgia

  • Myopathy

  • Rhabdomylosis

  • Pancreatitis

  • Rash

  • Hepatitis

  • Cholecystitis

  • Thrombocytopenia

  • Raised Creatine Kinase

Zetia adverse effects could be rather severe, but the benefit of this drug might also be very limited. Thus, if you have been injured as a result of taking Zetia, contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Vytorin is similar to Zetia, in that it is a form of Ezetimbe, but it includes a statin, which actually makes it more efficacious.
