My name is Mick. I am 50 years old and, for the past 10 years, I’ve been taking 20 mg of simvastatin per day to bring down my cholesterol - it was 9.5.
I had a stroke about 18 years ago, at age 42. Afterwards, my right arm and leg were useless and, although I could talk, for about six months, my speech was ‘gibberish’. Thanks to therapy, my speech improved
Re the Case Study in WDDTY vol 12 no 11, I too have had problems with simvastatin. I am 40 years old and have familial high cholesterol.
In response to MT (WDDTY vol 12 no 11, p 8) on simvastatin (Zocor), after blood tests, my GP informed me that my cholesterol was high.
