Inegy is a new tablet which combines Simvastatin (a statin) with Ezetimbe (Ezetrol) which makes a potent cholesterol lowering drug.
Simvastatin 20 mg + 10mg Ezetimibe
Simvastatin 40 mg + 10mg Ezetimibe
Simvastatin 80 mg + 10mg Ezetimibe
People who have heart disease or diabetes often need to take many different medications. Combination preparations helps bring the overall number of tablets down. There is no other reason to prescribe a combination tablet other than convenience.
The side effects of Simvastatin and Ezetimbe are discussed in a separate document. The side effect profile would be that of the statin component.
If you are already taking Simvastatin and Ezetimbe separately ask your doctor for a prescription for the combined tablet.
