Ezetrol 10 mg Tablets contain ezetimibe which is used to lower increased levels of cholesterol. Ezetrol lowers levels of total cholesterol “bad” cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) and fatty substances called triglycerides in the blood. In addition EZETROL raises levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL cholesterol). LDL cholesterol is often called “bad” cholesterol because it can build up in the walls of your arteries forming plaque. Eventually this plaque build-up can lead to a narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing can slow or block blood flow to vital organs such as the heart and brain. This blocking of blood flow can result in a heart attack or stroke. HDL cholesterol is often called “good” cholesterol because it helps keep the bad cholesterol from building up in the arteries and protects against heart disease.
