Phl Simvastatin 

Indication

Simvastatin belongs to the group of medications known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors ("statins"). It is used in addition to diet and exercise to lower cholesterol levels.

It is also used to decrease the risk of Heart Attack, Stroke, or death regardless of whether cholesterol levels are high or not for people who have coronary heart disease (CHD) or have other arteries in the body that are blocked, or for those who have Diabetes and are over the age of 40.  It is also used to treat people who have certain inherited cholesterol disorders.

Simvastatin works by blocking an enzyme that helps create cholesterol in the body. As a result, less cholesterol is made and levels of cholesterol in the blood decrease. Simvastatin lowers the level of total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad" cholesterol) and raises high density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good" cholesterol) levels.

The medication usually takes about 2 to 4 weeks to have a significant effect on the cholesterol level in your blood. After this time, your doctor will likely send you for a blood test to check for changes in your cholesterol levels.

This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Phl Simvastatin may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Phl Simvastatin may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Phl Simvastatin for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Phl Simvastatin, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Phl Simvastatin without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Phl Simvastatin to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Phl Simvastatin if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Phl Simvastatin 

Dosage

Before or when starting simvastatin, you should be placed on a cholesterol-lowering diet. If appropriate, a health care professional will discuss an individualized program of weight control and physical exercise with you.

The starting dose of Phl Simvastatin depends on your medical conditions and other medications you are taking, and can range from 5 mg to 40 mg taken once daily in the evening. The maximum recommended daily dose is 80 mg, which may be used for some people who have been taking this amount for a long time with no muscle problems or people at high risk of heart disease who have problems taking other "statins." The maximum daily dose may be lower for people taking certain medications.

The maximum dose for children and adolescents 10 to 17 years of age with inherited cholesterol disorders is 40 mg.

For best results in lowering your cholesterol, it is very important that you closely follow the diet suggested by your doctor.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Phl Simvastatin exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Phl Simvastatin at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Phl Simvastatin 

Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Phl Simvastatin.

Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol can increase the risk of liver damage when taking simvastatin. If you  regularly drink more than 3 drinks of alcohol daily, the risk is further increased and you should be closely monitored by your doctor while taking Phl Simvastatin.

Diabetes: Simvastatin, like other medications in this family, may cause a loss of control of blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using this medication.

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how this medication may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Phl Simvastatin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Grapefruit juice: Don't drink grapefruit juice while taking Phl Simvastatin, as it can increase the amount of simvastatin in the blood and increase the risk of serious side effects.

Kidney problems: People with decreased kidney function should discuss with their doctor how Phl Simvastatin may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Phl Simvastatin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Phl Simvastatin to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have a history of liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Phl Simvastatin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Phl Simvastatin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Laboratory tests show signs of harmful effects to the liver that may occur for a small percentage of people who take simvastatin. When Phl Simvastatin is stopped, liver function usually slowly returns to normal. Your doctor will perform regular tests to check your liver function.

Phl Simvastatin should not be used by people with active liver disease or by people whose liver function tests are higher than normal.

Muscle effects: In rare cases, serious muscle pain, cramps, and weakness have been associated with the use of statin medications (i.e., cholesterol-lowering medications whose names end in "statin," such as Atorvastatin, Fluvastatin, Lovastatin, Pravastatin, Rosuvastatin, or simvastatin), especially at higher doses. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you:

  • are 65 years of age or older
  • are female
  • are taking other cholesterol-lowering medications such as fibrates (e.g., gemfibrozil, Fenofibrate) or Niacin
  • do excessive physical exercise
  • have a family history of muscular disorders
  • have diabetes
  • have had any past problems with the muscles (pain, tenderness) after taking a statin medication
  • have Hypothyroidism (low Thyroid) that is not controlled with medication
  • have kidney or liver problems
  • have undergone surgery or other tissue injury
  • regularly drink 3 or more alcoholic drinks daily

Report any unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, weakness, or cramps, or any brown or discoloured urine to your doctor immediately, particularly if you are also experiencing malaise (a general feeling of being unwell) or fever.

Pregnancy: Simvastatin should not be taken during pregnancy. It may cause harm to the unborn baby. If you become pregnant, stop taking Phl Simvastatin and contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if simvastatin passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Phl Simvastatin, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Phl Simvastatin have not been established for children less than 10 years of age or in girls who have not started menstruating.

Seniors: If you are 65 years of age or older, you may experience more side effects. Your doctor will monitor you closely while you are taking Phl Simvastatin.
