I am taking 80 mg of Simvastatin and I have been taking it for several years now but I will be contacting my doctor about this. Thank you for the update.

Please let us know what your doc says. It is always interesting to find out what docs are advising in REAL life!

HeartHawl,
I talked with my cardiologist a couple weeks ago and he took me off that and put me on Crestor, hopefully no problems with that one
