Pravachol - Why was I told to make this medicine at night, before bedtime?

While you are sleeping, your liver is making the majority of your cholesterol, so theoretically, it would probably be best to be taking statin drugs before you go to bed. That way, your statin will be working at the point when most of the cholesterol is being made, helping it be most effective.

I was told to take before bedtime and I would sleep through any side effects.
I've been on 40 mgs. Pravachol for 3 months and so far, no problems.
