stronger warnings and dose limits for simvastatin

Addendum January 5, 2012

In December 2011, the FDA revised the dose limitation for simvastatin (Zocor) from 10 mg to 20 mg when it is co-administered with amiodarone. In June 2011, FDA previously recommended that the dose limitation for simvastatin be decreased from 20 mg to 10 mg, and has now reconsidered that recommendation.

You'll finally see stronger warnings and dose limits for simvastatin...Zocor, Vytorin, etc.
