Statin Pharmacology Episode 005

In this episode, I talk about the most commonly used statins.  In my practice I see simvastatin, atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, and pravastatin used most frequent.

In addition, I also discuss why statins are dosed at night, possible side effects, and important drug interactions.

Statins can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack.  I mentioned on the podcast and wanted to give that link to you.

Hope you enjoy the episode!
