Simvastatin is a medication which is prescribed to patients with high cholesterol levels. It is one in a family of cholesterol medications known as statins, which are often used in conjunction with lifestyle changes such as dietary changes and exercise. As with other statins, Simvastatin reduces the production of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which is the type of cholesterol that can cause fatal complications such as heart disease, angina and atherosclerosis, which can lead to stroke.

How does Simvastatin work?

LDL is the type of cholesterol that can lead to complications. Simvastatin works to inhibit the action of an enzyme known as MMG-CoA, which controls the production of cholesterol in the liver. As well as lowering production, Simvastatin helps with the absorption of LDL in the liver, which means that a lower quantity of cholesterol is able to sit in the arteries.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is another type of cholesterol that is not damaging to the body; in fact it is crucial to the production of certain hormones. Simvastatin helps to increase its levels.

How do you take Simvastatin?

It is available to buy from 121doc in four doses: 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg. The dose you are prescribed will depend on the severity of your condition, although patients usually begin the treatment by taking a lower dosage. The medication should be used in conjunction with lifestyle changes, which include lowering the amount of saturated fat in your diet and increasing your exercise. The most effective way to use it is taking one dose in the evening before you go to bed, as that is when the body usually produces the most cholesterol.

Who can take Simvastatin?

It is often prescribed to people who present high levels of LDL that cannot be lowered through lifestyle changes alone. It is also prescribed to patients who are at risk of cardiovascular disease due to hypertension or diabetes.

Some people may not be able to safely take Simvastatin, which is why it is important to mention any existing medical conditions or current medication to your doctor during a consultation. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding will not be able to take it and other people for whom it may not be suitable are those who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, kidney or liver problems.

Simvastatin side effects

People taking Simvastatin are at risk of experiencing some side effects. However, the symptoms are usually mild and temporary and can include muscle pain, nausea, headaches or cold-like symptoms. If you experience more serious side effects for prolonged periods of time you should consult your doctor as there may be a different form of medication that is more appropriate for you.

Can you buy Simvastatin online?

Yes, it is available to buy online from 121doc. As this is a prescription medication, you will need to complete a free online consultation that will allow a medical professional to ensure the medication is safe and effective for you to use. Once you have been issued a prescription, we will dispatch your medication using a free overnight delivery service so that it reaches you the next day.
