Quickly: Crestor and other statins lower child quickly and results can be seen in a couple of weeks. Conversely missing 2-3 doses allows cholesterol to shoot back up.

Right away, but...: The medication starts working right away, but it takes time for benefits to reach a level that one can detect on blood tests. Maybe 2-4 weeks after starting the drug, lab results will show better numbers. However, doctors usually wait 3 months before testing, to let the drug and one's body have time to reach a new balance and hit a steady level of improved cholesterol numbers.
