CARBAMAZEPINE in Carbamazepine may interact with SIMVASTATIN in Zocor
Carbamazepine may increase the rate at which simvastatin is broken down in the body. This could result in less simvastatin being available for the body to use and thus, simvastatin may be less effective at lowering your cholesterol. If these medications are used together, your doctor should monitor your cholesterol levels and adjust your simvastatin dose accordingly or change your simvastatin to another cholesterol lowering drug that does not have this interaction with carbamazepine. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity.
