Zocor FAQ Attorneys

Do I qualify for a Zocor lawsuit?
Perhaps…if you or a loved one are currently taking or formerly used 80 mg Zocor or simvastatin or Vytorin 10/80 mg and have been diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis or serious myopathy, it is recommended that you act now and consult with a Zocor unsafe drug attorney. If you are unsure, we recommend you still inquire.

Is simvastatin or Zocor safe to use with other drugs?

There is plenty of drug interaction to be avoided. If you are taking Zocor, do not take  Itraconazole, Ketoconazole, Erythromycin, Clarithromycin, Telithromycin, HIV protease inhibitors, and Nefazodone. There are other medications to avoid also. Please ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

On March 12, 2010, Zocor label was revised based on interim results from an ongoing clinical trial – the Heart Protection Study 2. What does the revised Zocor label say?
1) patients of Chinese descent should not receive simvastatin 80 mg with cholesterol-modifying doses of niacin-containing products; 2) caution is to be used when such patients are treated with 40 mg. or less in combination with cholesterol-modifying doses of niacin-containing products; and 3) healthcare professionals are to avoid prescribing simvastatin doses greater than 40 mg. daily when patients are taking the medication diltiazem, due to an increased risk for myopathy.

What is Simcor?
SIMCOR tablets contain niacin extended-release (NIASPAN) and simvastatin in combination. Simvastatin, an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, and niacin are both lipid-altering agents.
