Zocor - Overview
Zocor is a medication used in the management of high cholesterol and lipid disorders in some people. People who are interested in getting a Zocor medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Zocor, including Zocor generic, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Zocor Used For?
Zocor is a medication that contains the active ingredient simvastatin. Zocor belongs to a class of medications known as statins. Similar to atorvastatin (Lipitor), ezetimibe (Zetia), pravastatin (Pravachol), and rosuvastatin (Crestor), Zocor works by blocking the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase and reducing the downstream production of cholesterol. Through this action, Zocor is indicated in managing lipid levels in some people with lipid disorders and reducing mortality and risk in some people at high risk for coronary events.
Zocor - Dosage and Price
Zocor is available as Zocor 5 mg tablets, Zocor 10 mg tablets, Zocor 20 mg tablets, Zocor 40 mg tablets and Zocor 80 mg tablets. Many providers will start by prescribing Zocor 10 mg or Zocor 20 mg daily in the evening but the prescribed regimen depends on the health characteristics of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Following oral administration, Zocor peaks at approximately 4 hours in healthy people. More than 60% of Zocor medication is excreted in the feces. Branded Zocor is moderately expensive, costing approximately 80 cents per Zocor 20 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans will cover costs associated with Zocor tablets. Also, Zocor coupons can sometimes be found through the manufacturer or online.
Can I Buy Zocor Online?
One cannot just buy Zocor online as Zocor is a prescription medication in the United States and requires a consultation with a medical provider before it can be obtained from a pharmacy. Because of this, Zocor OTC is not available, either. However, people who need a Zocor medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Zocor when appropriate to do so.
Zocor - Side Effects
Zocor can cause side effects and questions about using the medications should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before use. Side effects that can occur while using Zocor include headache, abdominal pain, nausea, constipation and upper respiratory infection. Zocor can increase the risk of myopathy and liver dysfunction. Zocor can also interact with other medications such as CYP3A4 inhibitors and should generally be avoided when using these types of medications. Zocor and alcohol should not be used at the same time. People who have an allergy or hypersensitivity to Zocor or ingredients in the medication should not use Zocor.
