Background

1.1 Bempedoic acid with ezetimibe is recommended as an option for treating primary hypercholesterolaemia (heterozygous familial and non-familial) or mixed dyslipidaemia as an adjunct to diet in adults. It is recommended only if:

  • statins are contraindicated or not tolerated,

  • ezetimibe alone does not control low-density lipoprotein cholesterol well enough, and

  • the company provides bempedoic acid and bempedoic acid with ezetimibe according to the commercial arrangement.

Bempedoic acid with ezetimibe can be used as separate tablets or a fixed-dose combination.
