What is Simvastatin?
Simvastatin belongs to a group of medications called statins that are specifically intended to help lower blood cholesterol levels. It works to reduce the production of LDL (low density lipoprotein), which is a dangerous type of cholesterol that poses a serious risk to your health. Taking statins can significantly lower your chances of coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis and angina. This medication is successful at treating high cholesterol as a result of lifestyle factors, age and genetics.
HealthExpress offers you a safe and effective way to order Simvastatin online, all you have to do is start the process by completing a completely free and confidential online consultation form. This form will be checked by our doctor who will provide you with a diagnosis. If our doctor decides that this medicine is safe for you to take, you will be able to place an order based on their recommendation. Because of the nature of this medication, you should only consider purchasing it online if your GP has recommended that you use it.
What are the benefits of Simvastatin?
Simvastatin can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise to effectively reduce levels of LDL in your system whether the causes are genetic or due to lifestyle factors. By lowering the levels of harmful cholesterol in your blood, it reduces your chances of developing heart disease, angina and atherosclerosis. This is because excess cholesterol can't build up and obstruct blood vessels and starve your muscles and heart of oxygen and blood.
How does it work?
Simvastatin lowers the level of LDL in your body, simply by preventing your liver from producing too much of it. The treatment does this by stopping the actions of an enzyme in your liver. This causes an imbalance between the concentration of LDL in your liver and your blood, as there is now less LDL in the liver cells then in your blood. This causes the liver to absorb LDL from your blood, lowering blood cholesterol levels.
Simvastatin also reduces the levels of other dangerous fats in your blood, such as triglycerides and promotes production of HDL (high density lipoprotein), which is a 'good' type of cholesterol.
How do I take Simvastatin?
Simvastatin is available from HealthExpress in the following doses: 10mg, 20mg, 40mg or 80mg. Which one you should use will depend on your condition and your doctor's instructions; however you will normally be started on the 20mg or 40mg doses. The tablets should preferably only be taken in a single dose before you go to bed, because your liver produces the most cholesterol during the night.
Who can take it?
The patients that will most benefit from Simvastatin include those with one or more risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as hypertension or diabetes, even if your level of cholesterol is not especially high. You shouldn't take Simvastatin if you are taking certain medications, such as amiodarone for example, as it may have a negative effect on your kidney function, or if you are pregnant or have liver disease.
What are the side effects?
Simvastatin doesn't normally cause side effects and in the rare instances that it does, they are usually mild and short lived. The most common side effects affect between 1 in 1000 and 1 in 10,000 people and they include; headaches, pins and needles, dizziness, constipation, nausea, vomiting and indigestion. If you experience any muscle pains, weakness, cramps or tenderness you should contact a doctor straight away.
