I just started with simvastatin about a week ago after years of high cholesterol, 270 last count. I have been on antidepressant for a year and a half. First Prozac, now Wellbutrin. I'm feeling very nausea on both. And dizzy. I need to lower my cholesterol and would like to stop the antidepressant if I have too.
