Simvastatin is used to treat high cholesterol levels in the blood. It works by blocking an enzyme that is needed by the body to make cholesterol, so this reduces the amount of cholesterol in the blood.
Simvastatin may also help your body reabsorb cholesterol that has built up in plaques on your artery walls, preventing further blockage in your blood vessels and heart attacks. Research in this area is ongoing.
So in answer to your question it certainly reduces the formation of new plaque but may also help to reduce already formed plaque.
