I have been on simvastatin for several years now and have not noticed any swelling or enlargement of my upper stomach. But after reading the previous answer it made me realize that I was experiencing some of the drugs side effects. Great answer mas04169 I learned somethings that I did not know about simvastatin. Wish I could say the same about my belly. It is the only part of my body that has increased in size. Maybe my addiction to chocolate in any form (especially rocky road with chocolate syrup) may have something to do with that. But my cholesterol has gone down nicely. Hope you feel better. B
