Talk with your doctor. If you want to stop taking your statin for any reason, talk with your doctor. If your doctor thinks it's safe for you to consider changing your statin usage, they can help guide you. Reducing your dosage, adding supplements, or stopping the drug altogether might all be options.

Getting off statins is easy. Stop swallowing the pill. If you’re not in a potentially high-risk group (as described below) and your doc prescribed a statin to get your cholesterol down a bit, you won’t have a heart attack or a stroke that day or week or probably that decade.

Your doctor can order it. He can get it from SpectraCell or Quest. If your doctor refuses, find another doctor, or get it done yourself. Direct Labs and some of the other direct consumer lab testing companies will do it for you, without a doctor’s order. You can get it done.

Get your doctor's permission. Your physician who prescribed the statin drug needs to be aware that you want to stop. Schedule an appointment to review the lifestyle and/or drug steps you intend to take before stopping the statin. Review the plan together and agree on a timeline.

Take supplements to help balance the whole system. First, fish oil, is great; two to four grams a day will help lower cholesterol, lower triglycerides, boost the good cholesterol, and reduce inflammation. Next, you can take PGX; it’s a super fiber that helps lower triglycerides and lower cholesterol in the right way.

The doctor may suggest reducing the dosage, combining the statin with another cholesterol lowering drug, or switching to another drug entirely. Last medically reviewed on July 23, 2019 Cholesterol

A change of dosage, a different statin, or even a different type of cholesterol medication might be helpful. These drugs are important heart medications and can be life-saving by lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of a heart attack or stroke. 6. Chart Your Discontinuation Plan.
