List of Cholesterol drugs

Statins may also help prevent heart attack and stroke by stabilizing plaque deposits and improving blood flow. (In addition, some evidence suggests that they may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and kidney diseases, cancer, macular degeneration, and osteoporosis.)

Other cholesterol drugs should be used when statins alone are insufficient or contraindicated, or possibly when levels of triglycerides or the "good" HDL cholesterol are abnormal.
