Daily Life Interactions for Simcor 1000mg-20mg Extended-Release Tablet

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Major Lifestyle Interaction

Grapefruit juice and Simvastatin(Simvastatin)
Simvastatin (Zocor) may be taken with or without food. Continue to follow the cholesterol-reducing diet recommended by your health care provider. It is recommended that you avoid taking Simvastatin with large amounts of grapefruit juice. Large amounts of grapefruit juice (greater than 1 quart per day) can increase the side effects of Simvastatin. Orange juice is safe to drink. Contact your prescriber immediately if you experience unexplained muscle aches, muscle pain or tenderness, general weakness or fatigue, side or back pain, or decreased urination while taking Simvastatin (Zocor).

Alcohol and Simcor 1000mg-20mg Extended-Release Tablet(Niacin)
Alcohol and Niacin (Vitamin B3)(Niacin)
Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages at the times you take Niacin, Niacinamide. Side effects such as skin flushing from Niacin may get worse when you drink Alcohol (also known as Ethanol) at the same time as your Niacin dose.
Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Food and Simcor 1000mg-20mg Extended-Release Tablet(Niacin)
Food and Niacin (Vitamin B3)(Niacin)
Avoid drinking hot beverages or eating hot food around the times you take Niacin. Ingesting hot food or beverages may worsen skin flushing (example: warm and reddened skin of the face, neck or chest) while taking Niacin. Alcoholic beverages may also have this effect, so also avoid drinking alcohol around the time of your Niacin dose. Taking Niacin with meals may help to decrease skin flushing.
