Hypertension notes - Simvastatin and Amlodapine - draft post from 2011 - finally published

I don't fully understand this, I quit taking the Simvastatin, but I'm still taking Amlodipine, it keeps my hypertension under control in combination with the Carvedilol.

Great:  I just read in an unreliable source that Simvastatin Causes Memory problems. that is good on one end and means my memory may get better now that I've stopped taking it. But bad because I hate taking anything that messes with the brain.

Here is a webmd article about taking amlodipine and simvastatin together - http://www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-5891-amlodipine+Oral.aspx?drugid=5891&drugname=amlodipine+Oral&dmid=2158&dmtitle=AMLODIPINE/SIMVASTATIN&intrtype=DRUG&pagenumber=9
