What is Simvastatin?

Simvastatin is a medication that is used to reduce the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides within the body. In reducing high cholesterol it is able to also lower the risk of you developing serious health problems. There is a correlation between high cholesterol, triglycerides and the increased risk of heart disease, stroke or heart attack. So it is important that this medication is used if a person suffers from high cholesterol.

As with all statins, Simvastatin should be taken alongside health improvements of a healthier diet and partaking in more exercise for best results. Patients with heart disease can also use Simvastatin to slow down the progression of the health problem.

This medication belongs to the drug class known as statins or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. You can buy Simvastatin online at euroClinix in doses of 10, 20, 40 and 80mg in packs of 84.

How and where should I store Simvastatin?

Firstly, you should keep this medication tightly closed. This medication should be stored at room temperature, from around 41 degrees to 86 degrees Fahrenheit or 5 degrees to 30 degrees Celsius.

It is important to bear in mind at all times that this and all other medications should be kept out of the reach of children. Moreover, do not share your prescription with others; the indicated prescriber should only use this medication.

What are the benefits?

When taken alongside a healthy diet balanced with exercise, Simvastatin tablets can effectively reduce the levels of LDL in the blood, whether the levels of high cholesterol were caused by genetic or lifestyle factors. When the levels of “bad” cholesterol are lowered, the risk of you developing cardiovascular problems such as heart disease, atherosclerosis and angina are significantly reduced.

Evidence also suggests that Simvastatin tablets are able to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in patients who have diabetes or coronary heart disease.

You can buy Simvastatin online from euroClinix after completing an online consultation. The consultation will be reviewed by one of our doctors, to ensure that this medication is suitable for you.

How does Simvastatin work?

Cholesterol is made in the liver, but can also be contained in the foods we eat. This medication lowers cholesterol by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA, which is present in the liver and is responsible for controlling the rate at which cholesterol is produced in the body. When this enzyme is blocked, the liver makes less cholesterol. In addition, this medication improves the liver's ability to absorb LDL from the blood, which lowers the blood cholesterol levels.

This medication also increases the levels of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, known as "good" cholesterol. The level of triglycerides (another type of fat) in the body is also lowered

Who can buy Simvastatin online?

Simvastatin tablets are designed for people who have high cholesterol and are at risk of cardiovascular disease. As it is a prescription medication, it is not suitable for everyone. It is important to fully disclose any medical conditions you have or medications you are taking when you complete your consultation, if you choose to buy Simvastatin online from euroClinix.

A history of a stroke or heart attack, or a family history of hypercholesterolemia, may make this medication unsuitable for you.

Please note that patients need to have been prescribed this medication before in order to buy it from euroClinix.

How to take Simvastatin

This medication is available in a variety of doses: 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg. Most people usually begin this medication on a lower dose, although this will be decided by your doctor and will be based on your medical condition. You should take this medication exactly as it has been prescribed to you, as this will ensure your safety and the efficacy of the treatment.

Before you buy Simvastatin online you should first read the enclosed instructions. There is also a copy available to download at the bottom of this page. The instructions contain a comprehensive list of side effects and interactions. You can find below guidelines on how the medication should be taken:

  • This medication is available in 4 doses; you will most likely be given the lower one first
  • You should swallow Simvastatin whole with a glass of water
  • Do not crush or chew
  • It is advisable to take Simvastatin in the evening as this is when cholesterol is made and processed
  • You can take Simvastatin with or without food

What are the side effects?

Though this medication is considered a safe medication, it is a prescription medication so there is an inherent risk of side effects. If they do occur, they will likely be mild and should not last for very long. These could include mild muscle or joint pain, nausea, constipation, headaches, a skin rash, stomach pain or cold symptoms such as a sore throat or a stuffy nose.

Below is an outline of the different types of Simvastatin side effects that can develop. Taking Simvastatin when it's safe for you to do so, meaning that there aren't any current health conditions or medications that could interact with the treatment, significantly reduces your chances of getting them.

Neurological

It is quite common to experience mild headaches or dizziness after taking Simvastatin. Behavioural changes, memory loss or sleep disturbances are far more rare and should be discussed with a doctor if they occur.

Gastric

An upset stomach is a common side effect of Simvastatin. This could occur as general sickness, abdominal pain, constipation or nausea.

Skin

Skin rashes and itchiness may occur but this is not very common.

Muscular

Muscle aches, pains, weakness, tenderness or cramps are not common but may be an indication of muscle damage and as such should be reported to a doctor if they occur.

More serious side effects are very rare and will require urgent medical attention if they occur. They can include more serious muscle pain, weakness or tenderness; pain or a burning sensation while urinating; an allergic reaction characterised by hives, swelling of the throat, lips, tongue, or face; difficulty breathing; jaundice; yellowing of the whites of the eyes and severe abdominal pain.

There have been people who have reported muscle damage as a result of taking Simvastatin, although this is extremely unlikely. You should seek help if you start developing sleep disturbances, memory loss, depression or breathing problems as these Simvastatin side effects may develop alongside effects that indicate muscle damage. If you experience Simvastatin side effects that resemble an allergic reaction you should also seek medical help and advice straight away.
