Drug Uses
Zocor is used for lowering blood cholesterol levels and thereby reducing the risk of stroke, heart attack, and heart disease. Zocor may also be used to lower triglycerides.

How Taken
Use Zocor as directed by your doctor. Take Zocor with or without a meal. Do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice at the same time you take Zocor. This may increase the amount of Zocor in your blood, which may increase your risks for serious side effects. If you are also taking cholestyramine, you should take the cholestyramine in the morning and Zocor in the evening to minimize any drug interactions. Cholestyramine can reduce the amount of Zocor in your blood, which will decrease its effectiveness. Zocor is most effective when used with exercise and a diet that reduces the intake of cholesterol (fat) and saturated fats.

Missed Dose
If you miss a dose take it as soon as you remember. However if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the Missed Dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

Storage
Store Zocor at 41 – 86 °F (5 – 30 °C).
Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Zocor out of the reach of children.

More Information
Zocor should be used only by the patient for whom it has been prescribed. Do not take less or more or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
