Aside from Zetia there haven’t been any good non-statin options for lowering LDL Cholesterol. Statin drugs like Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin) and Crestor work well to lower the “bad” cholesterol, the LDL, and have remained first line therapy for many years. Finally, there may be something new to get excited about.

There are other non-statin cholesterol medicines, too, but the same principles apply – they should be used only for high-risk patients, and the risks must be weighed against the benefits. In 2015, the FDA approved two new drugs that target and inhibit the PCSK9 protein, which affects the levels of bad cholesterol. The two drugs, Repatha and Praluent, block or reduce PCSK9 activity in order to lower LDL cholesterol by more than 50 percent and potentially reduce cardiovascular risk.

Statins Are Not for Everyone Statins are a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs that target all aspects of your lipid profile. They can successfully lower LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) and triglycerides while raising HDL ("good") cholesterol. Although they are very effective in lowering cholesterol levels, statins may not be for everyone.
