Discussions that mention simvastatin

High & Low Blood Pressure board


According to Dr.Koop's mention of a semi-large study, the risk of myopathy is increased tenfold in patients taking verapamil with their simvastatin (ZOCOR) (.63%)rather than with the simvastatin alon (.061%)...both small numbers but one is vastly larger than the other.

Risk is also VASTLY different depending on the dose of simvastatin (alone):
.02% at 20 mg.
.30% at 80 mg.
