I have been taking atorvistatin now for several years and my practice is trying desperately to get me on to simvastatin.

I believe this to be purely cost based. Can anyone please tell me if sim is better than ator?

    Atorvastatin is 'better' at lowering Cholesterol than Simvastatin, (generally speaking) they put you on it when Simvastatin isn't lowering it enough smile
