A statin is just a class of drugs, just like a beta blocker, or ace inhibitor. They are used to reduce cholesterol. The class denotes drugs made out of certain chemicals. Knowing the class of a drug probably means more to medical professionals because if we know what class a drug is in we know how it acts and what side effects it will have.
