Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query. Vytorin is a combination of two drugs ,namely,Ezetimibe and Simvastatin.The half life of the two drugs is about 2.5 to 3 hours.The excretion from the body will be gradual and will be excreted from the body in 48 hours/2 days.

But I did take it for five months

The drugs are excreted fairly quickly and will be eliminated within 48 hours of the last dose,there does not seem to be any storage for the drugs in the body.Please give me a positive rating,thank you.
