Yes there are several meds best to take at bedtime. Cholesterol is on the list. If you are unsure your pharmacist can tell you.
Stay well and gentel hugs to you.

Everybody that has answered me has said to take it before bed. How come whenever I’m in the hospital the nurses there insist I take it in the morning? I’d like to hear from some nurses as well on this subject.

I take Atorvastatin for Cholesterol and I take it T 4pm with my dinner.

I don’t take at bedtime because it makes my legs hurt to much and I don’t sleep well.

My doctor has it at bedtime. The cholesterol med. Atrovastin.
