Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Any Clinical and/or Laboratory Adverse Experiences While Taking VYTORIN® Within 14 Days After Treatment Discontinuation [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after the treatment discontinuation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Participants who recieved VYTORIN and experienced any adverse event related or unrelated to VYTORIN®, within 14 days after treatment.

  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline to Treatment in Lipid Parameters [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean percent change from baseline to treatment in lipid parameters (total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, triglycerides[TG]) and overall efficacy was evaluated by the investigator to show if there was any(improved, unchanged, worsened) lipid parameters over a period of approximately 5 years.
