I have been on this medication for over two years and I'm having kidney problems.
I realize this answer is very, very late but may help someone in future. It is fine to stop taking simvastatin suddenly. You won't have any withdrawal symptoms. In this situation however, I would recommend that you let your doctor know that you have stopped taking it ... so that they can monitor your cholesterol levels.
