Simcor 1000/20 mg Tablets

Simcor® (niacin extended-release/simvastatin) is a prescription medication used for treating unhealthy triglyceride or cholesterol levels. It comes in tablet form and is available in several strengths, including:
  • Simcor 500/20 mg tablets (containing 500 mg of extended-release niacin and 20 mg of simvastatin)
  • Simcor 750/20 mg tablets (containing 750 mg of extended-release niacin and 20 mg of simvastatin)
  • Simcor 1000/20 mg tablets (containing 1000 mg of extended-release niacin and 20 mg of simvastatin).
The recommended starting Simcor dosage for most people with high cholesterol is 500/20 mg once a day, taken at bedtime with a low-fat snack. Your healthcare provider may increase your dosage if necessary. This must be done slowly, to minimize liver problems as well as flushing due to the niacin component of the medication. It is recommended to increase the dose no more rapidly than by 500 mg (based on the niacin component) every four weeks. The dosage can also be decreased if Simcor side effects occur. The maximum recommended daily dosage of Simcor is 2000/40 mg (two Simcor 1000/20 mg tablets) once daily.
