Zocor Generic Without Prescription

Zocor Generic is a cholesterol-lowering drug. It belongs to a class of drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, commonly called "statins." Other statins include lovastatin (Mevacor), atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), and rozuvastatin (Crestor). Statins lower cholesterol by inhibiting an enzyme in the liver (HMG-CoA reductase) that is necessary for the production of cholesterol.
In blood lipoproteins, statins lower total and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or "bad" cholesterol, and triglycerides. LDL cholesterol is believed to be an important cause of coronary heart disease. Lowering LDL cholesterol levels slows and may even reverse coronary artery disease. Statins also increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or "good" cholesterol. Raising HDL cholesterol levels, as well as lowering LDL cholesterol may slow coronary artery disease. FDA approved simvastatin in Decembe 1991.
