For High Cholesterol “I am currently on 20mg Zocor and started taking it six months ago. After I got my cholesterol checked again, the LDL went down 90 points! No side effects.”

For High Cholesterol “Started this med about 11 years ago. It dropped my level to below avg. I always associated my aches and pains to my age and activity level, but I’ve discontinued its use for about 3 weeks because my finger joints felt swollen and arthritic. I’m starting to feel a slow improvement. My additional symptoms are sore hips and other joints. To be fair, I won’t be able to discern whether this is the drug or some other factor until staying off it longer.”

For High Cholesterol “Been taking Zocor for a while now. Between 1-2 years.Seemed to feel OK, but heart always felt like it was skipping beats. Then about 3 weeks ago it happened every afternoon about 4PM daily scaring me because they were lasting for a long time. I don’t know anything but this medicine so I figured this must be my problem.So I just stopped the Zocor {simvastatin} and to amazement no more heart palapations.”
