Hi Friends,

Have any one taken simvastatin? The doctor gave me for lipids.

This time, my Rheumy gave me Metotroxate 20 mg once a week and Azathioprine 50 mg 3 times a week,Salazopyrin twice daily. He also gave me calcium daily 1 tab, vitamin D2 once a week along with Folic tab daily.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.
