Zocor Heart Pro discontinued

by News team

Zocor Heart-Pro, the first brand of simvastatin tablets 10mg to be sold over the counter in the UK, has been discontinued.

A spokeswoman for McNeil Product said the discontinuation is because of limited consumer demand. Simvastatin 10mg is also available as a pharmacy medicine from Bristol Laboratories, and from Dexcel Pharma as Lloydspharmacy cholesterol lowering tablets.
