Time of day to take statins

Postby CureOrBust » Tue Mar 14, 2006 2:22 am

Just got back from a pharmacy, where i chatted with the pharmacist about when to take statins. I have seen the question on this site before.

He told me that Lipitor can be taken at any time during the day, but simvastatin is best taken at night. The reason being that simvastatin (Zucor) relies on some enzyme. which is obviously at its highest point at night.
