ZOCOR (simvastatin) is a lipid-lowering agent that is derived synthetically
from a fermentation product of Aspergillus terreus. After oral ingestion,
simvastatin, which is an inactive lactone, is hydrolyzed to the corresponding
β-hydroxyacid form. This is an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme
A (HMG-CoA) reductase. This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate,
which is an early and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
Simvastatin is butanoic acid, 2,2-dimethyl-,1,2,3,7,8,8a-hexahydro-3,7-dimethyl-8-[2-(tetrahydro-4-hydroxy-6-oxo-2H-pyran-2-yl)-ethyl]-1-naphthalenyl
ester, [1S-[1α,3α,7β,8β(2S*,4S*),-8aβ]]. The empirical
formula of simvastatin is C25H38O5 and its
molecular weight is 418.57. Its structural formula is:








Simvastatin is a white to off-white, nonhygroscopic, crystalline powder that is practically insoluble in water, and freely soluble in chloroform, methanol and ethanol.
Tablets ZOCOR for oral administration contain either 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, 40 mg or 80 mg of simvastatin and the following inactive ingredients: ascorbic acid, citric acid, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, iron oxides, lactose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, starch, talc, and titanium dioxide. Butylated hydroxyanisole is added as a preservative.
