Dosage adjustment for simvastatin with concomitant medications: Cyclosporine or danazol: Patient must first demonstrate tolerance to simvastatin >/= 5 mg once daily: Initial: 5 mg, should not exceed 10 mg/day. Fibrates or niacin: Dose should not exceed 10 mg/day. Amiodarone or verapamil: Dose should not exceed 20 mg/day. Mechanism Of Action Simvastatin is a prodrug and is hydrolyzed to its active -hydroxyacid form, simvastatin acid, after administration. Simvastatin is a specific inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme.
Cerivastatin sodium is an entirely synthetic, enantiomerically pure inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. HMG-CoA reductase catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate, which is an early and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
HMG-CoA (or 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A) is an intermediate in the mevalonate and ketogenesis pathways. It is formed from acetyl CoA and acetoacetyl CoA by HMG-CoA synthase.
