What is Simvastatin used for?

What you should know about using Simvastatin for high cholesterol


Simvastatin is one of the most effective drugs for treating high cholesterol. It can actually regulate cholesterol levels so that healthy cholesterol, HDL, is more prevalent in the body. This has a powerful effect on the heart, the cardiovascular system and the rest of the body.

If you have diabetes or some heart condition, then Simvastatin may be something your doctor prescribes for you. Anytime you have a condition that is affected by high cholesterol, this statin can come in useful for improving cholesterol levels in the body.

This drug works by lowering triglycerides (certain types of fat) in the body and bringing your LDL cholesterol level down. In doing so, it boosts the level of HDL, or healthy cholesterol, in the body. Even if you continue to eat foods that are high in LDL cholesterol, the drug will keep working to maintain that unwanted cholesterol at low levels.

It is used as both a preventative treatment and a way to reduce symptoms and lower risk for further disease and damage. If you are at risk of diabetes, heart disease or other medical problems caused by high cholesterol levels, then Simvastatin can help. It can work pre-emptively to reduce your risk considerably and help your body flush out harmful fats.

Suppose you are recovering from a heart attack or are currently suffering from diabetes. In that case, this drug can reduce your symptoms, help get your condition under control and lower your risk for associated diseases.

This drug is typically recommended for adults, but any child over 10 can also use it who is suffering from high cholesterol. As a regulatory medication, it can be used even with relatively healthy individuals. Those who have a family history of diabetes or high cholesterol may benefit from Simvastatin, even if they are not currently at risk for high cholesterol.

This drug is more effective when it is coupled with a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen. That allows it to focus its efforts on the fat and cholesterol already in the body rather than fighting the new cholesterol and fat being introduced through the food a person eats. By living a healthy lifestyle while on this drug, it can be far more effective and provide much better results.

Before you take Simvastatin, be sure to talk to your doctor about your current health. Let your doctor know what medical conditions you suffer from, any medications you are taking and any treatment you are receiving. This will help your doctor to determine better if Simvastatin is right for you and what dosage of the drug you should be taking.
