You probably know cholesterol comes from food. But what you might not know is that cholesterol has a lot to do with family history. VYTORIN treats both sources of cholesterol. Only VYTORIN helps block the absorption of cholesterol that comes from food and reduces the cholesterol that your body makes naturally. Ahealthy diet is important, but when it's not enough, adding VYTORIN can help. In clinical trials, VYTORIN lowered bad cholesterol more than Lipitor®alone. VYTORIN contains two cholesterol medicines: Zetia" (ezetimibe) and Zocor® (simvastatin) in a single tablet. Continue to follow a healthy diet, and ask your doctor about adding VYTORIN.
