[QUOTE=vbblack;3763920]what could happen if i take tricor and simvastatin together

1: Severe myopathy and rhabdomyolysis.
2: Grossly elevated creatine kinase exceeding ten times the upper limit of normal has been reported.
3: If simvastatin has to be used with a fibrate, daily dosage should not exceed 10 mg.
4: Plus, patients should be closely monitored for hepatotoxicity.

5: If I were you, I would not go down that path. If you have already, turn around fast to the doc's.
