Not better-different: Both are statins, and work through the same mechanism to lower cholesterol. Crestor (rosuvastatin) is a more potent statin than zocor ( now generic as simvastatin). Crestor (rosuvastatin) is more hydrophilic (water friendly), and Simvastatin more lipophilic (fat friendly). Crestor (rosuvastatin) may also have a better drug-drug interaction profile but there are no head to head studies comparing one to the other with regard to heart dz. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Safe: But it is no good for lowering bad cholesterol. It may improve (a little) the good cholesterol and the best effect is on triglycerides.
