I can not sleep at night, can I take simvastatin in the morning?
According to the literature, "simvastatin is usually taken at bedtime or with an evening meal. If you take simvastatin more than once daily, take it with meals. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. You may need to stop using simvastatin for a short time if you have surgery or a medical emergency."
Everything I read says to take it in the evening, though I don't know why. Maybe best to ask your pharmacist.
