Zocor is a cholesterol-lowering drug. Your doctor may prescribe Zocor in addition to a cholesterol-lowering diet if your blood cholesterol level is too high and if you have been unable to lower it by diet alone.

In people with high cholesterol and heart disease Zocor reduces the risk of heart attack stroke and mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack) and can stave off the need for bypass surgery or angioplasty to clear clogged arteries.

You will have to follow a standard cholesterol-lowering diet before starting treatment with Zocor and continue this diet while using Zocor.

All doses should be adjusted to your individual needs.

* Grapefruit juice or grapefruits should not be consumed while on this medication as increased side effects may result.

ADULTS

The usual starting dose is 20 milligrams once a day in the evening. If your cholesterol is especially high the doctor may start with a dose of 40 milligrams. The dosage can be adjusted every 4 weeks. Some people with severe hereditary high cholesterol may be prescribed as much as 80 milligrams a day taken in doses of 20 20 and 40 milligrams along with other treatments.

Those who have severe kidney disease should use Zocor with caution. The recommended starting dose is 5 milligrams per day.

When combined with cyclosporine niacin Atromid-S Lopid or Tricor the dosage of Zocor should not exceed 10 milligrams a day.
