Since my heart surgery I am on Simvastatin (generic for Zocor), low dose. Not because my cholesterol is up, but because of the heart surgery. The docs said the statin supports my heart post-surgery, and that is why I take it, even though my every few months cholesterol readings are all well below "normal" these days.
