Available by prescription only, Juvisync® (sitagliptin/simvastatin) is a combination drug licensed to treat high cholesterol in adults who have type 2 diabetes.

Juvisync comes as a tablet that is taken once a day in the evening. Before starting treatment with Juvisync, make sure to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. For instance, people who have active liver disease or are taking certain drugs may not be able to take Juvisync.
