    Hi Robinr,

     

    Zocor may impact liver enzymes which are typically monitored prior to beginning the medication and then ~semiannually the first year.  If enzymes are elevated after 1 year of treatment liver enyzme monitoring would be more frequent.  However, everyone's situation is different and I recommend you consult your physician so you fully understand your treatment plan.

     

    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
