Uses
Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) is a lipid-lowering medicine which can help lower the risk of heart disease by reducing cholesterol and fat levels. Medical treatment is generally used as an adjunct to lifestyle changes (for example, weight loss, exercise and reduced cholesterol or saturated fat consumption). This medicine is a prodrug, meaning that it is converted to its active form upon absorption.

It functions as a statin, meaning that it acts in the liver, blocking the action of HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme which is needed for the biosynthesis of cholesterol. As a direct result of this, the level of cholesterol present in the liver cells is significantly reduced, causing the liver cells to remove even more bad cholesterol from the blood. The overall result of this is less cholesterol in the blood. Indications include preventing cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes or other risk factors and treating various forms of hypercholesterolaemia.

Dosage and Administration
Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) comes as 40mg tablets which are taken by mouth. Adults who are being treated with this medicine for the purpose of reducing the risk of cardiovascular events might be told by their doctor to begin treatment with a dosage consisting of 10mg or 20mg, taken once every evening. Subsequent changes to the dosage schedule may be ordered by the doctor, and the maintenance dosage normally ranges from 5mg to 40mg. However, patients in the high risk category might be ordered to start out with 40mg per day. Always comply with the directions given by your doctor.

Arrow-Simva (Simvastatin) might cause:

  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Memory problems
  • Digestive disruption

Tell your doctor about all side effects that you notice during the course of treatment. Other reactions not listed above may occur, and some of these may be serious. You will require immediate medical treatment or emergency medical care if any serious reactions occur, such as red and dark discoloured urine, a reduction in urination, any signs of blisters on the skin, photosensitivity, fever or other reactions that have not been listed here.

Precautions
There have been reports of serious skeletal muscle side effects occurring in rare cases (such as rhabdomyolysis and myopathy). Sudden or persistent occurrences of muscular weakness or pain will require immediate attention.

Medical tests on the function of your liver may be ordered by your doctor before the commencement of treatment, and at certain times during treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
