Policosanol is believed by some to be more effective at lowering high cholesterol than statin drugs. It is also less expensive and safer. Statin drug use can cause side effects such as liver dysfunction and muscle atrophy. In 2001, a report suggested that 18% of FDA approved cholesterol lowering drugs didn't actually work. New studies will assess the benefits of combination therapy of policosanol and aspirin.
