I`ve been taking Simvastatin for about 6 weeks, but I had to stop because they were making me feel very tired & drowsy, & every time I ate something I`d fall asleep. I haven`t taken any for about 4 days, & am steating to feel better. The trouble is that I know that my cholesterol levels need to be kept under control, & I`m very wooried that I`ll develop heart problems if I don`t take them. I want to ask my doctor`s advice but I can`t get an appointment for ages. Is there any other measures I can take to reduce cholesterol in the meantime?
