Generic Vytorin ™®: Simvastatin + Ezetimibe
Simvastatin is the chemical name of the active ingredient in Vytorin ™®

Tablets
Chemical Name: EZETIMIBE (eh-ZET-eh-mib) and SIMVASTATIN (SIM-va-stat-in)

Common uses : This is a combination of two medicines used to treat high cholesterol. Ezetimibe works by reducing the amount of cholesterol that your body absorbs from your diet. Simvastatin is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor or "statin". It works by blocking an enzyme that is necessary for your body to make cholesterol. This medicine is used in combination with a low-cholesterol and low-fat diet. Keeping your cholesterol level under control may reduce your risk of heart problems and stroke. This medicine is not a cure for high cholesterol, but may help to control it. This medicine may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.
