The best time of day to take your statin depends on the specific drug

Some statins can be taken at any time of day: 

  • Atorvastatin 
  • Rosuvastatin 
  • Pitavastatin 
  • Pravastatin 

Simvastatin and lovastatin should be taken in the evening. 

The timing of taking fluvastatin depends on the type of pill (immediate acting or extended release) and your treatment goals. Your doctor can help you decide on the best time for you to take your fluvastatin pill.

No matter what statin you take, try to take it at the same time every day. This helps you remember to take it.

Do I take my statin morning or night? The type of statin matters to get it right!
