... I've read that - to some - it doesn't matter and to others, it's best to take it at bedtime... I'm about to start this medication and I'm trying to figure out this thing when to take it. Thank you!
I suggest you take it at bedtime everyday at the same hour, the reason being is that when you are sleeping, your liver is making the majority of your cholesterol, so theoretically, it would probably be best to be taking your med before you go to bed. That way, your med will be working when most of the cholesterol is being made, helping it be most effective. You can take it with or without food.
