  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • It seems to me that the anal itching began shortly after I began taking Zetia. My doctor described it as caused by a fungus and prescribed Clotrimazole topical cream. He said to apply twice daily for one month, which I did. I am now into approximately month 3-4 and the itching continues. If I apply the cream twice daily, the itching is under control, but if I don't apply the cream twice daily the itching gets severe. After I started taking Zetia, I noticed frequent stomach gas and some fluid spotting in my underwear. The gas problem is embarrassing in public because it just doesn't stop, and I will have a loose bowel movement. I feel there is a connection between this gassiness and loose bowel movement since I started taking Zetia. Is the Zetia causing a fungal problem in my stomach which is causing the anal itching?
