Efficacy and Safety of Alternate-Day Versus Daily Dosing of Statins: a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
We conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-RCTs to synthesize evidence about the efficacy and safety of alternate-day vs daily dosing of statins. We searched selected databases through January 2, 2017 to identify relevant RCTs and quasi-RCTs. The primary outcome was change in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), and triglycerides (TG), while secondary outcomes included adverse events and adherence.
