Hi Devi Lal Shrestha,

I am not an MD, so I cannot say whether or not you should continue to take this drug. However, I definitely urge you to contact your doctor who prescribed the Simvastatin to you as soon as possible, and maybe ask about the possibility of switching over to another medication with less severe side effects.

If this is not an option, please consider urgent care, or alternatively talking to your local pharmacy about other recommendations to treat these specific conditions.

Please feel free to post back if you have any other questions or concerns pertaining to this.

I use a walker due to brain damage I suffered during multiple heart stops. Since I've been taking simvastatin 40mg my falling has doubled, cracking my head open and requiring staples. I fall backwards.

I started using simvastatin 40 about 2 weeks ago and feel a sensation of heat in my body after taking it. My hands feel the same way. Is this a side effect of the drug?
