My neurologist has recommended the statin "simvastatin " taken with vitamin d for my migraines. I'm 29 year old female.. and just a bit concerned about taking a statin at my age or in general.. I mean it's probably no better than the maxalt I'm popping.. but has anyone taken it or heard of it for migraines?

  1. Hi Emily, I have been taking simvastatin for about 2.5 years now for my high cholesterol (I'm 33), and it has definitely not helped my migraines. I'm actually considering stopping it for a while to see if it may be triggering them. However, if I've learned anything, it's that everyone reacts differently to each drug. Let me know how it goes for you if you try it. Best of luck, Sarah
