[quote="cjbrooksjc"]Predeem: Statins are poison to many people, but if you are one of the lucky few who are as yet unaffected, here is a simple rule of thumb: Most cholesterol production takes place during the night. Statins that are more aggressive but stay in the blood a short time are: Zocor, Mevacor, and Lescol and are most effective (I use the term with difficulty) when taken before bed. Lipitor, Crestor, and Pravachol are not as aggressive but stay around longer and can be taken any time. That said, please read the information contained on this site (Statins Home Page); read relative remarks in the forum, and consider if it is worthwhile to endanger your quality of life or perhaps life itself by continuing to take Statins.
This is true but you have to wonder then people have fasting blood tests done if nighttime is the time when it is created the most, when do people have their test done , usually first thing in the morning when the reading could be higher than they would normally be . Its possible people are being put on these drugs when they don't need to be.
