High-density lipoprotein called the good cholesterol the first component of lip trousset is a tour of a statin torva statin belongs to the hmg co a reductase inhibitors also called the statins they are the most effective drug for lowering ldl on total cholesterol these drugs also raise hdl and lower triglycerides in some patients statins work by inhibiting the hmg

Coa reductase the enzyme responsible for making more cholesterol in the liver by inhibiting this enzyme statins are able to inhibit cholesterol synthesis in the liver additionally cholesterol synthesis inhibition leads to an increased production of hepatic ldl receptors these receptors allow the hepatocyte stu remove more ldl from the blood effects of ezetimibe

Less complex zetas might helps to lower plasma cholesterol by blocking cholesterol reabsorption this reduces ldl total cholesterol triglycerides and april lipoprotein be in addition zet amide can produce small increases in ldl as you can see these two drugs work differently to reduce cholesterol llop trousset comes in a dosage of 10 milligrams of ezetimibe and 2010

40 or 80 of atorvastatin and two separate studies look trousset 10 40 milligram and 10 20 milligram has been shown to help patients get to a target goal of ldl more effectively than doubling the dose of atorvastatin therefore combining atorvastatin anisette amide not only increases therapeutic response but also allows the dose of atorvastatin to be reduced as you

Know the higher dose of medication the more likely patient is to experience side effects just as the therapeutic effects of lip trees it are derived from the combination of atorvastatin and ezetimibe the adverse effects are as well with the most serious side effects of lip trousset being rhabdomyolysis leading to acute renal failure patients with a history of renal
