When is the best time of day to take Crestor?

Medically reviewed by Last updated on April 7, 2023.

I was just given samples of 5 mg Crestor. When do I take it? Other statins say take it before bedtime. Is this true of Crestor?

Official answer


Crestor can be taken as a single dose at any time of day, with or without food.
Choose a time of day that will work best for you, and then take the medicine at the same time each day.
