my husband is on simvastatin the dr. put him on lovastatin should he take both
Dahowell - No one should take more than one "statin" medication at any time. The prescriber should be contacted to clarify which one he should be taking.
Iag517 - My mom 80 just had triple bypass and valve replacement. She's been on Simvastatin for 3 years when she had a stroke. Only know are we noticing the muscle weakness, shoulder pain....why? Her doctor has told her to stop taking it as of today. Will these symptoms go away? Is the damage, if any reversible?
