o simple blood tests before and during treatment with SIMCOR to check for liver problems.

SIMCOR may cause an increase in blood sugar levels. Patients with diabetes should report any changes in blood sugar levels to their health care provider. Women of childbearing age should use an effective method of birth control to prevent pregnancy while using SIMCOR. Flushing (warmth, redness, itching, and/or tingling of the skin) is the most common side effect and may become less frequent over time. Additional symptoms may include rapid or pronounced heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweating, chills, dizziness, fainting, and/or swelling. Flushing may vary in severity and is more likely to occur when starting therapy or during dose increases. By taking SIMCOR at bedtime, flushing will most likely occur during sleep. If awakened by flushing, patients should take their time getting up, especially if feeling dizzy, faint, or taking blood pressure medications. Other common side effects may include headache, itching, nausea, back pain, and diarrhea. More information about SIMCOR, including full prescribing information, is available on the Web site http://www.rxabbott.com/pdf/simcor_pi.pdf, or by calling Abbott Medical Information at 1-800-633-9110.
