Simvastatin tab 10 mg is a prescription for patients with high cholesterol levels. It is combined with diet to help lower bad cholesterol and fats and increase good cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. The active ingredient simvastatin reduces the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. Lowering bad cholesterol and fats and increasing good cholesterol levels decreases the risk of heart-related complications and helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. This cholesterol-lowering drug works best with proper diet and lifestyle changes (regular exercise and weight loss).
Your dose and how often you need to take the Simvastatin tablet depend on your age, the condition being treated, how severe the condition is, and other medical conditions you have. Usually, this medicine is taken orally once daily in the evening. You may need to take this medicine in addition to a diet low in sugar, fat, and cholesterol. Carefully follow your doctor’s advice. Drinking large amounts of grape juice regularly may make you more likely to develop muscle injury and could also cause kidney impairment. f
