How to get simvastatin (Zocor) online in Canada with Maple.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for simvastatin (Zocor) if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

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:

  • Dizziness
  • Fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Fainting

Other less common side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • 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
  • A history of narcotics abuse

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.

If you have any questions about the medication, you can speak to a doctor on Maple by registering for an account.
