Discussions that mention simvastatin

Drug Interactions / Side Effects board

My dad is in the hospital and three doctors (PCP, neurologist, and cardiologist) said that the weakness in the muscle was caused by the cholesterol lowering drug. Dad was not on Lipitor specifically - simvastatin (brand name: Zocor). Anyway, after they found he had stenosis, they backed off the cholesterol drug being the cause (see my thread on Back board). You can search on the net but there is a class action lawsuit filed in June 2006.
