The development of "Top 5" lists across specialties and at regular intervals can help to remind physicians that optimal care is often possible at a lower cost. For purposes of cardiovascular risk reduction, generic statins, or their brand equivalents if priced similarly, remain the appropriate choice for dyslipidemic patients initiating statin therapy. In this article, we review the evidence supporting the choice of generic statins.
