If you are taking ezetimibe you may need to be careful when taking these medicines:
- Cyclosporine is given to patients after an organ transplant, so the organ isn’t rejected. The level of both medicines may get too high when it taken together.
- Fibrates are used to treat high cholesterol. When some types of fibrates are taken with ezetimibe, it can lead to gallstones.
- Cholestyramine is used to treat high cholesterol. It lowers the amount of ezetimibe in your body when these medicines are taken together.
- Warfarin is an anticoagulant. Your doctor may need to check your blood clotting levels more often when you take warfarin with ezetimibe.
Stay safe – tell your doctor what you take!
