You could switch to a generic for
m of the same drug that you are on. for
example: if you take zocor, you could switch to simvastatin, if you take pravachol, you could switch to pravastatin. I wouldn't mess around with lovastatin because it is slightly weaker, plus I doubt that anyone would have you on a brand-name of this drug. Lipitor and crestor
aren't available in generic. If you take either one of these you could still switch to simvastatin, but definitely discuss this with you doctor.
