There are a few: Simcor (simvastatin and niacin) is made up of two meds; Simvastatin which mostly lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol, and Niacin which lowers LDL and triglycerides and raises HDL (good) cholesterol. The most likely side effects of Simvastatin are an inflammed liver and muscle aches, and with Niacin an inflammed liver as well as a flushing of the face which can be toned down by taking Aspirin 1/2 hour before it.
