The best time to take a statin drug depends on the patient’s risk of heart disease, cholesterol levels and whether they have been taking a statin for a long time.

Patients over 65 years old with three or more cardiovascular risks factors are likely to benefit from using statins. In these patients, it is recommended that they take them daily, up until the age of 80 years.
