Zypitamag uses a less busy enzyme pathway so it is less likely to cause problems with other medications you take.
What makes Zypitamag different from most statins
Statins, like most medications are metabolized by enzymes in our body. 70-80% of medications are processed by the same family of enzymes called CYP450. When these enzyme pathways becomes too busy it can lead to drug interactions.
Zypitamag bypasses this enzyme family and is instead mainly processed by a less busy enzyme family. This leads to a reduce potential for certain interactions with other medications.
