Despite the medical consensus that taking certain statins is more favourable in the evening, the study found no “statistically significant” difference between the two times of day.

At eight weeks, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels were reduced by 34.5 and 35 percent in the morning and evening treatment groups, respectively.

LDL cholesterol is the harmful type of cholesterol that raises your risk of heart disease.

What are the side effects to expect?

Side effects can vary between different statins, but common side effects include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling sick
  • Feeling unusually tired or physically weak
  • Digestive system problems, such as constipation, diarrhoea, Indigestion or farting
  • Muscle pain
  • Sleep problems
  • Low blood platelet count.
