Simcor Alternatives

In general, cholesterol treatment begins with lifestyle changes (weight loss, exercise, and a low-cholesterol diet). If lifestyle changes do not lower cholesterol to a desirable level, however, cholesterol medication, such as Simcor, may be necessary.
The main goal of high cholesterol medications is to lower LDL cholesterol levels enough to reduce your risk for developing problems such as heart disease or a heart attack (see Effects of High Cholesterol). The higher your risk, the lower your LDL goal will be.
(Click High Cholesterol Risk to see a list of risk factors that may affect your cholesterol level and a general guideline of ideal LDL cholesterol levels.)
For most people, Simcor is quite effective in lowering cholesterol. Side effects can occur, however, and people may wish to consider a substitute for Simcor. These substitutes could include other statins or other cholesterol medicines.

What If I Take an Overdose?

If you happen to overdose on Simcor, seek medical attention immediately (see Simcor Overdose for more information).

Storage Methods

Simcor should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Simcor?

If you do not take your dose as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the one you forgot and take your next dose instead. Do not take double the dose.
