Frequently Asked Questions
What is simvastatin (Zocor) and how does it work?
Simvastatin (Zocor) is a ‘statin’ medication (also known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors), which helps to reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) and fats (triglycerides) in your blood, while increasing levels of ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL).
Zocor prescriptions do this by reducing the amount of cholesterol produced by your liver.
What are the uses for simvastatin (Zocor)?
Simvastatin prescriptions are commonly used to lower the risk of heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular complications in people with diabetes, coronary artery disease and other heart conditions.
Zocor is often prescribed alongside a diet plan (low-fat/low-cholesterol), regular exercise and a detailed weight loss plan (in those who are overweight) to improve overall cardiovascular health.
How do you use simvastatin (Zocor)?
A Zocor prescription will be given in a tablet or liquid form, to be taken orally once a day in the evening.
A typical dosage of simvastatin is 40 mg, though you should always consult with your doctor to decide what dosage will work best for you. Don’t ever exceed the recommended dose prescribed to you.
If you’re taking the liquid form of simvastatin, always be sure to shake the bottle for 20 seconds before pouring the dose, and always use marked measuring devices (not household spoons) to make sure you’re taking the right amount.
What are the side effects and risks of simvastatin (Zocor)?
If you’re considering requesting a simvastatin prescription online, you should be aware that common side effects include:
- Fast or irregular heartbeat
Other less common side effects include:
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose
Rarely, statins like Zocor can also worsen symptoms in people with diabetes. Be sure to tell your doctor that you have diabetes if you’re considering a simvastatin prescription.
Who should not take simvastatin (Zocor)?
Before you consider a Zocor prescription, tell your doctor if you’ve ever had:
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- A history of excessive alcohol use

You should avoid consuming any alcohol or cannabis while taking simvastatin, because any side effects from the prescription could be intensified. Pregnant women should not take simvastatin, as it has been known to cause damage to the unborn baby.
