How Zocor works

Zocor's main function is to inhibit liver enzymes from causing the production of cholesterol from the fats we consume. If this treatment is taken alongside a diet that is low in saturated fat this can be extremely effective and prevent further build-up of fatty plaque that can lead to atherosclerosis, a condition that carries with it a risk of severe circulatory problems.

Zocor has also been known to help control overall blood lipid content and enhance the levels of good cholesterol, which means that more cholesterol is being taken to the liver to be broken down rather than simply moving towards cells.

Patients that can benefit from using Zocor

The lowering of high cholesterol usually first involves lifestyle changes which may include an increase in exercise and dietary improvements. However, if these methods prove to be unsuccessful or a patient's health is at serious risk, statins are usually a good option to use in conjunction with a more balanced lifestyle.

Statins can be safely taken by most patients, but it should not be taken by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; patients with liver or kidney problems or if there is an existing allergy to the statin or any similar treatment. It's important to ensure that you mention to your doctor if you start taking any new treatments while on this medication to ensure that there isn't a risk of contraindications.

Taking Zocor

Statins such as Zocor only need to be taken once a day, ideally in the evenings. This is because most of the body's cholesterol is produced at night and will ensure the most targeted treatment is provided. Most doctors will start a patient off on the lower dose, which will then be increased as required.

Statins should not be consumed with grapefruit as this may influence how the body absorbs the drug. Excessive alcohol intake is also not advised.

Side effects of Zocor

Side effects are rare, but they are a possibility, just like with any type of prescription medication. However, statins have been around for many years and the benefits of this treatment have been found to outweigh the risks to patients in most cases.

Common side effects may include headaches, nausea, insomnia or dizziness, however these are likely to pass as the body starts to adjust to the treatment. Should these side effects persist or you experience anything more serious, which may include severe muscle aches or an allergic reaction, immediate medical attention should be sought.
