1. Why should I take statins, a lipid-lowering drug for coronary heart disease? 

First of all, it is clear that statins are not only lipid-lowering drugs, statins can lower bad blood lipids such as cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, and can also increase high-density lipoprotein, a good blood lipid. 

Everyone knows that scurvy is the culprit of coronary heart disease. Good blood lipids can prevent coronary heart disease, so friends with coronary heart disease need to take statins.


What's more important is that statins not only regulate fat, but also anti-inflammatory and stabilize plaque. What do you mean?


Aspirin prevents thrombosis. Only when plaque ruptures can thrombus form. How can we reduce plaque rupture?


A statin is a drug that stabilizes plaque, prevents plaque rupture, and can even reverse plaque. Therefore, as long as it is coronary heart disease, regardless of high blood lipids, you need to take statins for a long time.

2. What drugs are available for statins and what are the goals of taking statins?

Statins are not a drug, but a class of drugs. There are currently three generations (recommended dose):

  1. The first generation includes lovastatin (20mg), simvastatin (20mg), and pravastatin (10mg) 
  2. The second generation includes fluvastatin (40mg)
  3. The third generation includes atorvastatin (20mg), rosuvastatin (10mg) and pitavastatin (2mg)


Coronary heart disease taking statins mainly depends on low-density lipoprotein, and the goal is to reach 1.8mmol/L. 

If the low-density still does not reach 1.8 when the dosage is increased, then we suggest that the base low-density should be reduced by at least 50%.


3. What items need to be checked before and after taking statins? 

Before taking:


Four blood lipids: cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, high-density lipoprotein, triglycerides.


Blood sugar, liver function, kidney function, creatine kinase.


The above items must be reviewed 1-3 months after taking.


If there is no abnormality, recheck at least once a year in the future.


4. What are common side effects of statins?

Common side effects can vary between different statin categories, but common side effects are:

  • Feeling Sick
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Fewer Blood Platelet Count
  • Fatigue or physical weakness
  • Some digestive system troubles, such as farting, constipation, diarrhoeaindigestion
  • Muscular pain
  • Sleeping disorders


5. What are uncommon side effects of statins?

The uncommon side effects of statins can possibly be:

  • Hair Loss 
  • Memory Abnormality 
  • Becoming Sick
  • Pinching pins and needles
  • Dermal conditions such as acne or an itchy red rash
  • Liver inflammation (hepatitis) which may cause flu like symptoms
  • Pancreatic inflammation (pancreatitis), which can cause abdominal pain
  • Sexual conditions, such as libido loss (lower sex drive) or ED (erectile dysfunction)

What are some rare side effects of statins?

Rare side effects of statins include:

  • Weakness in muscles (myopathy)
  • Sensational loss tingling in nerve endings of feet and hands (peripheral neuropathy)
  • Tendon conditions (tough cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones are referable as tendons)

What are the side affects of statin on muscles?

Statins may occasionally cause muscle inflammation (swelling) including damage. 

You may need to talk to your doctor if you have muscle pain, tenderness or weakness that cannot be explained e.g. pain that is not attributable to any physical exertion.

The doctor may may need to conduct a blood test to measure a substance in your blood referable as creatine kinase (CK), which is released into blood when muscles are inflamed or damaged.

If the CK in your blood is more than 5 times the normal level, your doctor may advise to stop taking statin. 

Regular physical exercises can sometimes lead to a rise in CK, so you should ideally tell your doctor if you are exercising too much.

Once your CK level has returned to normal, your doctor may suggest you start over with statin again, but with relatively lower doses.
