Aspavor - ALTERNATIVE

I cannot write or paint normally because the muscles in my right hand dont function normally. The specialist diagnosed this condition as dystonia. I realise that this condition is most likely caused by my prolonged use of statins, firstly Zocor, then Lipitor and now Aspavor. I also have hemifacial spasm . I recently started a routine of massaging my face and discovered how very sore the muscles in my cheeks are. I have no doubt that the Aspavor has also contributed to this condition. I am also on Ezetrol . I take 20mg Aspavor and 10 mg Ezetrol and Ecotrin daily. I had carotid surgeries about 5 years ago and have a stent inserted in one of the arteries after it began closing up with cholesterol again. I am fed up with the muscle spasms and I want to take an alternative. I will appreciate...

round, salmon, 93 7154 ## Did you ever figure out what the salmon-colored, round pill with markings: 93 on one side and 7154 on the other side is? I have one, and can't identify it. Thanks, Vic ## My Rx for 20mg Zocor (Merck) was recently filled with this medication. I am informed that it is equiv. to the 20 mg Zocor. It is manufactured by Teva and is a 20mg Simvastatin. ## I just today noticed my Simvastatin refill from VA looked different from the Zocor shield-shaped tablets. /they are saknon collor with 93 on one side and 7154 on the other. Jack's reply seems to make sense since VA is normally very careful about patient care. ## Yes, I can confirm this ID, it is Simvastatin 20mgs, a generic for Zocor. ## My Dad has had a reaction to simvastatin. He has been in hospital for 7 ...
