Discussions that mention simvastatin

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Zocor will not be available on any insurance company pharmacopeia becaue it JUST went generic. So now it can be bought as simvastatin. Only one company is making it as I type and they cahrge just as much ad the brand name...but that will change by the end of the year as more and more generic companies get on the bandwagon.

My insurance company will pay for them all equally, but once a generic comes out, THAT'S the only one they'll pick up.

I was stunned though when I asked my pharmacist about the generic and she looked it up and said the retail is $106/month
