when will vytorin be available in generic form?
144586_tn?1284669764
The U.S. patent expires during March 2014 and one should expect a generic equivelant within 24 months of that date.

That being said Vytorin is a combination product of two manufacturers, Merck and Shering-Plough. The brand name combination includes Simvastatin (Zocor) and ezetimibe (Zetta).

That being said, generic inexpensive simvastatin has already been approved by the U.S. F.D.A. and is available and there are already similar drugs to ezetimibe.
