Is anyone here taking Simvastatin for cholesterol? I have beeb taking it for the last 3-4 months and am concerned that it might be contributing to the kidney issues I am facing. Once your cholesterol is under control, does one need to continue this drug? The specialist I saw was not ready to give an opinion on this, but did speak about the benefits it might have, but after a closer look at the side effects etc, I am not so sure. Currently going through more tests for a better picture of my overall kidney health. The Dr. really did her best to put my mind at ease and she did help, but now my mind is going into overdrive again. I need a hug.
