Zocor

What is Zocor?

ZOCOR (active ingredient – simvastatin) is a prescription drug that helps lower your cholesterol levels, when proper diet and exercise are inadequate. Zocor is also prescribed for patients with coronary heart disease.
ZOCOR reduces the risk of:

  • Coronary death
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

Should I take Zocor?

You should not take Zocor if you:

  • Are allergic to any of the ingredients found in Zocor

  • You are pregnant
  • You are breast-feeding
  • You are currently taking Posicor (mibefradil).

NOTE: If you are of childbearing age do not take ZOCOR unless it is highly unlikely you will become pregnant.
Your doctor should perform routine blood tests to check these enzymes before you start treatment with ZOCOR and periodically thereafter to make sure the level of liver enzymes increases.
