The most commonly used options for the pharmacologic treatment of dyslipidemia are statins, resins, fibrate, niacin, and their combinations..

Statins are safe. Side effects are unusual and transient if any. Liver function needs to be checked during the first few weeks. Most extensively studied are atorvastatin and rosuvastatin. Both are safer but differ only in potency, although I prefer rosuvastatin in my practice.
