Patient : I was on simvastatin for 8 years but had to stop taking them as every muscle and joint ached real bad. Its my triglyceride reading that are high and since coming off the tablets this has shot up again. They offered me a drug called 'Secalip' 200 but isnt this just another statin with a different name? The side effects read the same as the simvastatin so is there any point in taking it.
