Inegy 10/40 mg Tabs 28'S Antihyperlipidemic

Ezetimibe and simvastatin.

Inegy contains the active substances ezetimibe and simvastatin.

Inegy is a medicine used to lower levels of total cholesterol, “bad” cholesterol (LDL cholesterol), and fatty substances called triglycerides in the blood.

In addition, INEGY raises levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL cholesterol).

Inegy works to reduce your cholesterol in two ways.

The active ingredient ezetimibe reduces the cholesterol absorbed in your digestive tract.

The active ingredient simvastatin belonging to the class of “statins” inhibits the production of the cholesterol your body makes by itself.

Active ingredients:
Ezetimibe, simvastatin.

• Inegy tablets are used for patients who cannot control their cholesterol levels by diet alone. You should stay on a cholesterol-lowering diet while taking this medicine.
• Inegy is used in addition to your cholesterol-lowering diet if you have:
- That is not well controlled with a statin alone.
- If you fail to control your blood cholesterol when using a statin and ezetimibe as separate tablets.
- A hereditary illness (homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia) that increases the cholesterol level in your blood. You may also receive other treatments.
- Heart disease, INEGY reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, surgery to increase heart blood flow, or hospitalization for chest pain.

How To Use:
• Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
• If your doctor has prescribed INEGY along with another medicine for lowering cholesterol containing the active ingredient cholestyramine or any other bile acid sequestrant,
you should take INEGY at least 2 hours before or 4 hours after taking the bile acid sequestrant.
• Take INEGY in the evening. You can take it with or without food.
• Adults: The dose is 1 tablet of INEGY by mouth once a day.
• Use in adolescents (10 to 17 years of age): The dose is 1 tablet of INEGY by mouth once a day (a maximum dose of 10 mg/40 mg once daily must not be exceeded).

Side Effects of Inegy tablets:
• Muscle aches,
• Elevations in laboratory blood tests of the liver (transaminases) and/or muscle (CK) function.

Do not take Inegy if:
• you are allergic (hypersensitive) to ezetimibe, simvastatin, or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.
• You currently have liver problems.
• You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
• You are taking medicine(s) with one or more than one of the following active ingredients: itraconazole, ketoconazole, posaconazole, or voriconazole (used to treat fungal infections),
Erythromycin, clarithromycin, or telithromycin (used to treat infections), HIV protease inhibitors such as indinavir, nelfinavir, ritonavir, and saquinavir,
boceprevir or telaprevir (used to treat hepatitis C virus infections), nefazodone (used to treat depression), cobicistat, gemfibrozil (used to lower cholesterol), ciclosporin (often used in organ transplant patients).
• You are taking or have taken, in the last 7 days, a medicine called fusidic acid (a medicine for bacterial infection) orally or by injection. The combination can lead to serious muscle problems (rhabdomyolysis).

Tell your doctor:
• About all your medical conditions including allergies.
• If you drink large amounts of alcohol or have ever had liver disease.
• If you are due to have an operation.
• Your doctor should do a blood test before you start taking Inegy and if you have any symptoms of liver problems while you take INEGY. This is to check how well your liver is working.
• If you have diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes (if you have high levels of sugars and fats in your blood, are overweight) and have high blood pressure.
• Grapefruit juice contains one or more components that alter the metabolism of some medications, including Inegy. Consuming grapefruit juice should be avoided as it may increase your risk of muscle problems.
