I am taking Amlodipine 2.5 mg and my doctor prescribed Simvastatin 40 mg. When I picked up the medication the pharmacist warned me of a major interaction. The doctor told me to take the medication anyway because I was able to tolerate Pravastatin, which I was on previously. I had also been on Lipitor and Crestor previously, but both gave me muscle aches. Although my cholesterol levels have been fine on Pravastatin, my doctor wanted to be more aggressive about my treatment. I am confused as to whether take the Simvastatin or insist on something else. Kindly help.
