LIPITOR vs VYTORIN
Dec 24, 2004
... There's nothing *magical* about Vytorin...the big advantage is that the ZETIA (20mg Zocor +10mg Zetia) it contains allows one to use LESS statin to accomplish the same LDL lowering as a HIGHER statin dose alone. For example, 5mg Lipitor +Zetia is about as effective in lowering LDL as 20 mg Lipitor. Less Liptor=less side effects. Personally, I take 10 mg Crestor with a half... (3 replies)

Lipitor vs Vytorin
May 12, 2007
... I would like to ask the experts here which is the better drug. Which has less side effects and which is less dangerous, Lipitor or Vytorin...thank you.. ... (3 replies)
... Overrun, I agree about OLD vs. NEW drugs. The advantage of the combo drug, Vytorin, is that you can take less of the statin, simvastatin, to get the same effect. Probably not wise to snap the pill in half because all doses have the same amount of zetia (ezetimibe), 10 mg. But if you did so, I doubt the world would cease spinning on its axis ;) . No, as your doctor... (6 replies)

... I've never been on a statin myself, but I have a brother who had similar problems with Baycol, Lipitor, and Crestor. He is now on Vytorin, but hasn't been on it long enough to know whether or not he'll have problems with it, too. I am personally on niacin therapy, taking 750 mg daily Endur-acin, divided 3x with meals, and have achieved good control and no side effects. My... (18 replies)
