How Simvastatin Works
Simvastatin is the active medicinal ingredient found in Zocor; it is primarily used to treat individuals with high cholesterol. It is also used to treat coronary heart disease, arterial diseases and diabetes in people over 40 years of age. It can also be taken to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death. Simvastatin works by blocking a certain enzyme that creates cholesterol in the body thus decreasing cholesterol levels in the blood. This medication can be taken in combination with other cholesterol medications as directed by your physician. Your doctor may have prescribed this medication for other reasons other than those listed; therefore it is important to take Simvastatin exactly as prescribed.
Generic Zocor vs Brand Zocor
The difference between the brand and the generic zocor is minimal. Both medications contain the medical ingredient Simvastatin. Simvastatin is marketed by Merk as Zocor in the USA only; Zocor is known as Lipex in other countries around the world. Keep in mind that Blue sky drugs is a global pharmacy and your order of Zocor may have an alternate name depending on its country of origin; an alternate name does not make the medication a generic. Generic Zocor or Simvastatin is manufactured outside of a Merck facility; this is the biggest difference between Zocor and Simvastatin. Generic Simvastatin and Zocor are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use.
