Generally, half the amount of Lipitor will have the same results as simvastatin (Zocor). If you take a 10mg dose, you would need to switch to a 20mg dose of simvastatin (Zocor). However, when switching from one cholesterol-lowering medication to another, the dosage is best determined by your doctor.
