Lower your cholesterol, see possible sleep disturbances

Filed under:

If you're into lowering your cholesterol due to it being at an abnormally high level, that is great. Just don't expect a solid night's sleep any longer.

Well, that may be pushing it, bu a new report stated that the statin drug Zocor could disturb those nightly sleep patterns when taken by some patients.

The report, whose conclusions were presented this past week at the American Heart Association's annual meeting, did state that the extent of the problem is unknown, but as that more Americans take statin drugs to reduce cholesterol, more sleep problems may crop up.
