Discussions that mention simvastatin

High Cholesterol board


Hello,

I noticed exactly the same thing when I was on Niaspan. My glucose went up around 112 which was slightly out of normal range. This upset me quite a bit as I have heard stories of people who didn't watch the glucose numbers that closely and wound up with numbers close to 200 before it was caught!
I went off it after 2 blood tests with that high glucose number. My last glucose reading was 82 so it was definitely the drug.

I switched to simvastatin. I was originally put on niaspan because I was afraid of statins. I have not had any side effects from the statin that I can identify and it controls my LDL much better.
