Afternoon doc. Sorry, I want to ask a good cholesterol drug that has the benefit of simvastatin or avorstatin … Please respond, yeah doc. Thank you
Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Both of these drugs are included as statins in which the group is HMG coa reductase inhibitors, namely by destroying the enzyme that can help to reduce cholesterol in the blood. So that in general both are effective for reducing cholesterol, especially when triglycerides are high, in the long run will reduce the risk of events such as heart attacks and strokes. Both drugs should be avoided in women who are pregnant.
Some things that distinguish are
Simvastatin in several studies has an effect for a higher risk of muscle pain than found from atorvastatin
Simvastatin will work effectively at night
For drug selection should be adjusted with a consultation from a doctor because the dose adjustment is needed and varies each person, this is to prevent side effects that can be experienced such as muscle pain, headaches, constipation, pain in the stomach area, nausea and vomiting.
