Ezetimibe (Zetia®) is licensed to treat high cholesterol and a rare genetic condition called sitosterolemia. As a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, it works in the digestive tract by blocking the absorption of cholesterol from the foods you eat. This prescription medication is available as a tablet, and is typically taken once a day. Prior to taking ezetimibe, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
