In brief: No
According to lactmed, a free, accurate database about medications and breastfeeding, Zetia (ezetimibe) is not recommended during breastfeeding because of concerns about disrupting the baby's lipid metabolism. An alternate drug is preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
