Generic Vytorin is a medicine of high quality which is used for treating high cholesterol along with a cholesterol-lowering diet in adults and children who are at least 10 years old. Generic Vytorin works by reducing the amount of cholesterol that your body absorbs from your meals which reduces the chance of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
Generic Vytorin contains a combination of ezetimibe and simvastatin. Ezetimibe reduces the amount of cholesterol absorbed by the body. Simvastatin is in a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." It reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).
