    I have used Simcor for around five years. Only problem is the classic - flushing, wanting to pull my skin off, sweating, rapid heart beat. I can associate it with what I have eaten, especially spicy Mexican. Easily controlled by taking 3 baby aspirin as soon as I feel it coming on. May happen 4-6 times per year.
