What are the pills available to lower the cholesterol?

Too many to list. "statins " are most common, they work thru hmg-coa inhibitor and work thru the liver. Welchol blocks fat absorption in the large intestine, Zetia blocks absorption in the small bowel, Niacin raises the good cholesterol HDL and lowers the trigylcerides. Fish oil such as lovasa has omega 3 and lowers triglycerides, fibrates such as tricor (fenofibrate) lower triglycerides as well. Can use these solo or in combo.
