Simvastatin has been wdely used by members on this forum including myself. Took it for a few months but not currently taking it at the moment.  So yes,Simvastatin, and overall a very healthy diet!!!!

simvastatin.  try it for 6  month and report to us if it does not work.  steff thinks it does not work.  i might try it myself.  perhaps it is too weak.  We should try ibesarten and simvastatin together.

I use simvastatin.  I stopped taking it for a few weeks, while I had been taking TDF, and my HBV DNA went from UND to 400 IU.  Started taking it again and my HBV DNA went back down to UND.  Sim reduces HCC risk and also acts synergistically with TDF, increasing the effect.

easy to get sim - go to your doctor and get it prescribed for hyperlipidemia.

simvastatin 40mg had the max effect in vitro in combo with tdf or etv but it may have muscles pains as side effect so you have to find the best dose for you.when i tried it i was ok with 20mg dose

some countries sell with no prescription for sim and antichol drugs so you may find it online with no prescription
