  • I am 58 and started taking ezetimibe (Ezetrol)10MG daily. I am experiencing memory loss and want to know how many patients taking ezietimibe are having this condition.


    Southernlady on Jan, 9, 2014:

    I am a 65 yr old female.Healthy, with high LDL. I took zetia only 9 days. After about 5 days, I started having very severe pain in legs like when I took Lipitor and Zocar. I began to forget things, and felt as if I was loosing my mind. My face swelled, hands swelled so much I could not get my rings off, my feet became numb, had ringing in my ears, foot pain, knee pain, was tired all the time,and was getting short of breath. I also had no energy, and had to force myself to do anything, I only took it for 9 days. It is aboout 2 weeks later, and almost all those horrible symptoms are gone. I still have some forgetfulness, it is improved, but is very scarey. I hope I will be back to my old self soon. I only wish I had quit taking Zetia sooner. Does anyone know how long it takes to quit having the memory problems??
