Zocor is a Simvastatin,which is a hypolipidemic drug used by patients to control high cholesterol. Zocor is also sometimes used to treat dyslipidemia and for preventing cardiovascular disease. Although Zocor used to be Merck's best selling drug, it has since lost copyright protection, so generic variants exist. Another variant of the same drug is called Simcor.

Zocor has a number of side effects and also have a number of counterindications. Zocor adverse effects include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Muscle Cramps

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Joint Pain

  • Memory Loss

  • Diarrhea

  • Indigestion

  • Myositis

  • Rhabdomyolysis

  • Chronic Hepatitis

  • Hepatic Cirrhosis

  • Muscle Injury

  • Dark Urine

  • Dangerous Counterindications with Amiodarone

In 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) included warning labels on Zocor, which warned about the possibility of developing muscle injuries. Furthermore, in 2011, the FDA added new warnings, which recommended particular dosages of Zocor.

Rhabdomylysis is a very serious kind of muscle injury. Broken down muscles are released into the blood stream, and such a dissemination can cause serious damage to other bodily organs, including the kidneys, which can then subsequently lead to kidney failure. People who suspect that they have developed Rhabdomylysis should consult a medical professional, as there are a number of possible causes for this condition.

If you or a loved one has been injured by either taking a simvastatin alone or in concert with another drug, then you might be entitled to significant compensation in a simvastatin settlement. A Zocor law firm can help you secure that settlement that you deserve.
