Were you looking for information about Zetia? Zitia is a common misspelling of Zetia.
Zetia is a prescription medicine licensed to treat several conditions, including high cholesterol and a rare genetic condition called sitosterolemia. It is effective at decreasing total cholesterol and "bad cholesterol," as well as slightly decreasing triglycerides. By itself, the drug has little effect on "good cholesterol."

While Zetia is used as a way to lower cholesterol, anyone with high cholesterol should also make certain lifestyle modifications, such as eating a low-cholesterol diet, getting regular physical exercise, and losing weight if necessary. The medicine is available in one strength, and comes as a tablet taken once daily. Among the factors that may affect the dosage your healthcare provider prescribes are the medical condition being treated and other drugs you may be currently taking.
