Q: I am discontinuing Simvastatin. What is the best way to wean off?

My husband has been taking Simvastatin for a couple of years.  He has lost his short term memory and was told that this medication is responsible.  How does he get off of them safely?

Hi DiDoo,


I recommend you contact his physician to discuss discontinuing the medication and the best approach for your husband to wean off.  You'll also want his physicina to monitor his condition to determine if a medication other than a statin will be needed.


All the best,

I just spoke to another friend of mine that has High Cholesterol and can't take statin drugs.  She has had him on our product for 3 months now and his Cholesterol has gone from 239 to 97.  If your afraid to have him back on statin drugs this is a good way to help him keep it down.  It's Guaranteed and if it doesn't work in 2 months you'll get all your money back but I guarantee it WILL work!!  Good luck with your husband.  My husband was on that also and is now on our products and doing fabulous.  Keeping it under control finally and they didn't think that would ever happen.  Made a believer our of our Drs.


The product I'm going to tell you about is the most amazing product that lowers cholesterol... I guarantee it.  We are the only All Natural Product listed in the Physicians Desk Reference. We are a very reliable company and this product was first introduced by Rexall Drug in 1989.  It was actually pateneted for  Cholesterol/Heart Health/Blood Sugar Control that after years of selling this product has went one step further and added more All Natural Ingredients and made SLIM for people who want to control weight and cholesterol..Bios Life C is for someone that doesn't need to lose but needs to control there Cholesterol/Bloos Sugars.  I have lost over 63 lbs since 7/2/09 & 29".  It tastes like a dreamsicle.  Check out my website and see what I am talking about.  I don't care if you order from me..I just would like for you to check it out to see how safe and wonderful this product is.  Also on my Buy now page check out my customer that has lost 39lbs  and has had her thyroid meds stopped and cholesterol meds cut in half and they just did the same for her husband.  The Dr. is amazed and said for them not to stop taking this product.
