of medications that inhibit the production of cholesterol
in your liver. As a result, levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol in your blood go down, which has been associated with a reduced risk of coronary artery disease
Some frequently prescribed statins include Crestor (rosuvastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), and Zocor (simvastatin).
