A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Antihyperlipidemic agents promote reduction of lipid levels in the blood. Some antihyperlipidemic agents aim to lower the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, some reduce triglyceride levels, and some help raise the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. By reducing the LDL cholesterol, they can prevent both the primary and secondary symptoms of coronary heart disease.
Niacin and ezetimibe are available in combination with statins, as single dose forms. Antihyperlipidemic agents are also available in combinations with antihypertensive agents. By having one pill with a couple of agents makes it easier to take and increases compliance.
