Were you looking for information about Statins? Stattens is a common misspelling of statins.
A healthcare provider may prescribe a statin medication to treat high cholesterol. Statins are also known as "HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors" and work by inhibiting a particular enzyme that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body. This causes the liver to make less cholesterol. Statins come in tablet and capsule form, and are typically taken once or twice a day (based on the particular product). Your healthcare provider will determine your dosage based on several factors, such as how you respond to the statin product, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking.
