My husband and I have both been taking Simcor for almost a year. We take it in combination with 3 pills of Welchol each day, along with a pharmacy grade fish oil capsule (2 per day).

I've been on drug for approx 4-5 years. It's done wonders for on Cholesterol level, down to 150. I too experienced the flushing, but resolved via baby aspirin. However, my doctor reviewed new research on Simcor recently and recommended I change meds. So, now taking Atorvastatin; will run blood tests in two months to check cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Good news - new med a fraction of the price of Simcor; bad news - TBD.

Have taken Simcor several years with no side effects. The only med that lowers my cholesterol within limits. Cigna has dropped Simcor from their formulary for next year! United American is only part D provider now. Will switch to them Dec 7th. I take it at bed time and fall asleep with no problems. It is expensive which is why Signa dropped it from formulary!

I have taken Simcor for over 5 years and it has done wonders lowering my cholesterol where statins alone could not. I have never experienced any bad side effects except for possibly some slight hot flashes at times but not a daily experience and not severe.
