Treatment depends on your age, health history, if you smoke, and other risk factors for heart disease, such as diabetes, poorly controlled high blood pressure, family history of heart disease etc.
The most commonly used and most effective drugs are called statins. eg. lovastatin , pravastatin,simvastatin, fluvastatin, torvastatin and rosuvastatin.
Other drugs that may be used include bile acid sequestering resins, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, fibrates, and nicotinic acid (niacin).

Your doctor will choose what is best for you.

You may also be prescribed blood thinners to help prevent DVT if you are high risk, or undergoing high-risk surgery.
