What is it for?
Simvastatin Mylan (Simvastatin) is a type of medicine known as an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor and is used to treat high cholesterol levels. It works by breaking down what is called “bad cholesterol” (low density lipoproteins or LDL) and encouraging healthy, or “good cholesterol” (high density lipoproteins or HDL). This can prevent the occurrence of cardiac conditions such as strokes, heart attacks, hypertension, or heart disease. The medication is usually used in combination with a balanced diet and regular exercise to get the best results. Your doctor may recommend that you take it for other unlisted reasons, too.

How do you use it?
Your instructions for using Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) will be decided by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Most patients are told to take one tablet every day in the evening. These should be swallowed with a full glass of water and may be taken with or without food. Do not take more than one 40mg tablet as this is the maximum daily dosage. Avoid splitting or crushing the medicine before taking it since this can destroy or change its effects. If you have any questions about the medicine, always ask your doctor to make sure no mistakes are made that may cause serious health problems.

Any side effects?
Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) has been known to lead to side effects in some patients including:

  • Headaches
  • Coughing, sore throat, or cold symptoms
  • Upset stomach, constipation, or diarrhoea
  • Mild joint or muscle pain
  • Mild skin rashes
  • Insomnia

Always call your doctor as soon as possible if any side effects appear that are serious or worrying such as confusion, severe fatigue, unusual swelling, painful urination, increased thirst, fever, flu symptoms, darkened urine, discoloured stools, or jaundice. These health problems can require changes to your dosage or how often you take the medicine to prevent more complications. You may be directed to go to the emergency room or seek immediate assistance if your symptoms are severe or life threatening.

Never use Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, attempting to conceive, under ten years of age, lactose intolerant, if you have active liver disease, unexplained raised results in liver function tests, or if you are taking any other medications without contacting your doctor. You are also recommended to tell your doctor if you have an underactive thyroid gland, porphyrias, a history of liver disease, reduced kidney function, or if you consume large amounts of alcohol.
