GPs warned over muscle risk with simvastatin-amlodipine combination

Comment

We are in the process of changing all our patients on this combination to atorvastatin. Once warned it simply isnt worth risking adverse effects! Statins do give muscle problems and a feeling of being non specifially unwell even with a normal CK. Happy to be given advice which may prevent problems in our patients.
