Has anyone ever taken Vytorin or Zetia with a Statin?

My husband has a history of fluctuating liver enzymes so he's been on and off statins over the years. Last month his doctor added 10 mg Zetia to his regimen of 10 mg Lipitor to lower his LDL particles (they were 1799....should be under 1000). After a month of taking the combination, his blood test showed that while his LDL particles went down to 1299, ALL his liver enzymes were elevated. The doctor told him to stop the Lipitor and retest his liver enzymes in two weeks. I did some research and found that the drug companies hid the fact that Zetia along with a statin can damage your liver...what a surprise....not! Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of Zetia and its possible detrimental effects when prescribed alone and/or with a statin? Thank you!
