Zocor is the brand name (simvastatin=generic) for a drug that reduces "bad" cholesterol. Zocor has actually been shown to reduce death rates by reducing "bad" cholesterol concentrations in people with heart disease. Zocor has been proven to reduce heart attacks, chest pain, and deaths due to heart attack.
Side Effects The most commonly reported adverse reactions in Zocor clinical trials were: upper respiratory infections (up to 9.0%), headache (up to 7.4%), abdominal pain (up to 7.3%), constipation (up to 6.6%), and nausea (up to 5.4%). These numbers were not that much different from those in the trials who received placebos. This drug is usually well tolerated, but rarely does cause significant side effects; therefore, talk with your doctor!

'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death..... Thomas Paine|
|Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze: "I have suggested many ways for evaluating spiritual ideas and systems. There will be a tendency to instantly reject what I have to say about your favorites, because many of my ideas are controversial and may violate your current truths. Can you accept that your instantaneous rejection indicates a bias, a prejudice and/or an unwillingness to look carefully at your current ideas?" Continued here - free read.||
