My doctor prescribed Simistatin for me due to marginally high cholesterol (just over 200 points total) and a family history of heart disease. The first few weeks I took this medication I didn't notice much difference in my personal well being. After retesting my cholesterol it was down 30 points to much more acceptable levels.

However I started to notice that I was getting very stiff at work. If I sat still for more than 30 minutes I wouldn't be able to get up without feeling sore all over. I will be seeing my doctor soon to discuss alternatives.

I took Simistatin for a few months after the insurance company would not pay for another cholesterol fighting drug.
I ended up with severe muscle cramps and weakness and has to stop the medication. Once the cramps dissipated I began the drug again to test whether it was the culprit and sure enough the cramps and weakness returned.

Satins are very helpful in fighting cholesterol, but the side effects could be a major problem for some people

Started taking Zocor Simvastatin formulation a
little over 4 years ago on my doctor's advice.
My cholesterol was high, over 300, and heart
disease has ran in my family history.

After 1 year my cholesterol level dropped to
180, a significant drop, on just a half daily
dose. My levels have remained in safe levels
ever since on the same dose. My doctor is
happy with the results and I am satisfied this
has worked so well and to date I have no side
effects from its use.
