[Health] When do you take your statin?
#1
Question 
We seem to have thoroughly covered the statin topic to the point of beating a dead horse.

So, I thought we needed a new thread.
When do you take your statin?

Morning?
Evening?
Throughout the day?
I don't
Decline to state.

I haven't been on a statin for going on 2 1/2 years. Came off of this about 6 months after my bariatric surgery.

Take mine at night (simvastatin aka Zocor). This is when my cardiologist and pharmacist both recommended.

We mostly recommend taking them in the evening, independent of food. It has been found to be the most efficacious time to take it and reap the maximum reward. I would , btw recommend taking fish oil, particularly Cod Liver Oil as well, as it will aid in driving down the cholesterol.
