Inegy

Inegy is a new product that containes Simvastatin and Ezetimibe and it is licensed for hypercholesterolaemia.

The combination product would mean that a patient already taking the two separate products, or a patient who is not reaching target on a statin alone could be prescribed a single tablet that would have two cholesterol lowering effects.

However, the combination product cost approximately £8 per month more than the separate ingredients. This is equivalent to an additional 2 patients on treatment with the statin alone.

Action: At this time there can be no good reason to use this product over the separate ingredients, except perhaps for those patients with a known and significant compliance problem.
