GPs warned over muscle risk with simvastatin-amlodipine combination


I have to say I'm a bit sceptical that the interaction is specific to Simvastatin. Why would Atorvastatin not cause similar interactions?? Simvastatin is widely prescribed and hence there is a lot more data around this... I'll watch with interest in the future for similar warnings around other Statins.
