I am sorry I can not give you a direct answer. Someone with more knowledge in this area will read this and have an answer for you. I just wanted to tell you that it's a good thing when both your doctor AND pharmacist agree you should continue with these medications. Many people don't bother to check, let alone double check! You came to the right place for support and so many people here are very caring. All I can suggest is read both information sheets that came with the medications thoroughly. They include the common side effects as well as the more uncommon ones. Wish you well.

Lopid can be used along with Zocor. It will enhance the effect of Zocor.
However, the use of Lopid with a statin medication should generally be avoided due to the increased risk of kidney and muscle problems. This combination should be used only if the benefit of further lowering cholesterol levels outweighs the risk.
