My husband is currently on simvastatin
due to a cardiac condition, and
it was OK'd as appropriate even with his HCV and
cirrhosis. Although, with this new information, I'll be asking his cardiologist if he should be taking fluvastation instead?!?
It's also interesting to note that prior to being prescribed simvastatin he had elevated liver enzymes, but since taking it regularly, they've been on the high end of normal rather than elevated.
