What is Zocor?

Zocor (simvastatin) is a statin that is available on prescription (or over the counter in low doses). Statins are drugs used to treat treat patients with high cholesterol or who are otherwise at risk of cardiovascular events, such as stroke or heart attack. The statin lowers the amount of 'bad' cholesterol (LDL) in the blood stream and increases the amount of HDL, which is known as 'good' cholesterol.

How does Zocor (simvastatin) work?

Simvastatin lowers levels of LDL by decreasing the amount of cholesterol produced by the liver, thereby lowering blood cholesterol levels. The drug also lowers the number of triglycerides, which are other "bad" fats in the blood. The statin also causes a small rise in levels of HDL. The 'bad' fats decrease and the 'good' fats increase.

How to Obtain Statins Safely?

If a doctor has already prescribed a statin for you or if you have been diagnosed with higher than normal levels of cholesterol, then we are happy for you to purchase statins from our clinic but we will require you to fill out a medical consultation in order for us to make sure that it is appropriate to prescribe for you.

Is Zocor effective?

As well as keeping levels of LDL low, simvastatin can help to prevent coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke. Zocor has been around for a number of years and has proved very effective for most patients for whom it has been prescribed.

How do I know if Simvastatin is appropriate for me?

Patients who are prescribed statins usually have high levels of cholesterol in their blood. Sometimes those who have inherited unhealthy cholesterol levels will take this form of treatment.

Those who have problems with their kidney function, liver function, thyroid, hereditary muscular problems or who are heavy drinkers should be wary of taking statins.

If you complete our online consultation form then our doctors can assess if simvastatin is appropriate for you.

  • New Mechanism for Lowering Cholesterol

    A recent study has suggested that it might be possible to target other areas to lower cholesterol. Specifically, rather than aiming to inhibit one of the key proteins once they are in the LDL receptors, the idea is to address the transport mechanism that ensures that the protein reaches the LDL…
