After being on Simvastatin for 3 months I noticed that I had put on 1/2 stone in weight and my usual methods for keeping my weight down didn't work.
I mentioned it to the nurse at my review and she told me it wasn't the statin but just 'middle age spread'!
After a year on the drug I have put on a stone in weight and feeling fed up with this. My friend, who is a phamasist, says that weight gain is a common side effect of simvastatin but is not recorded by the drug company as a side effect.
I wonder if we can do a bit of research here, so please reply if you have also experienced this problem.
