Are statins associated with bladder symptoms? Bottom line: Observational studies have shown both improvement and worsening of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) while taking a statin. Long-term statin use may be associated with a delay in LUTS onset, especially in men. Worsening of LUTS may occur shortly after starting a statin, especially in women, and this effect may attenuate over time. However, the only RCT showed no difference in LUTS symptoms after 6 months in men.
