Vytorin Uses

Using Vytorin to Lower Cholesterol

The main goal of any high cholesterol treatment plan is to lower your LDL cholesterol enough to reduce your risk for developing problems related to high cholesterol (see Effects of High Cholesterol). The higher your risk, the lower your LDL goal will typically be.
