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.

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.

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

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.
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.
