Drugs & Devices > Vytorin

Vytorin is a cholesterol-lowering medication. Vytorin reduces the amount of cholesterol absorbed by the body and block the production of cholesterol in the body. Vytorin lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad" cholesterol) in the blood, and raises high-density lipoprotein (HDL or "good" cholesterol).

Vytorin is developed and marketed jointly by Merck and Schering-Plough. It was approved by the Food & Drug Administration in 2004 to treat both sources of cholesterol - absorption in the intestine of both biliary and dietary cholesterol, and production in the liver and peripheral tissues.
