Best cholesterol lowering drugs least side effects

What are the most common cholesterol lowering drugs prescribed today? 

Statins are definitely the most common. The major drug companies are all competing to come out with new statins under various trade names (such as Mevacor, Zocor, and Lipitor), as these are now widely prescribed drugs. They vary in price, and different health maintenance organizations (HMOs) often bargain and sign a contract with a particular drug company, so your physician might say, “I prefer you take this one and not the other one.” Each differs in some way in its chemical structure, but all produce the same effect, and in low doses they seem to be quite safe.
