Background: Statins have proven to be beneficial in reducing cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The data indicates that stains are underutilized due to cost considerations and unpleasant side effects. To overcome this problem, alternate day regimens of statins were proposed. The primary objective of this meta-analysis was to determine if alternate day dosing is as effective as daily dosing in blood lipid levels.
