Statins for the Prevention of Stroke
iride6606 posted:
Another great article on the topic:

The findings of this meta-analysis indicate that statins may be beneficial in preventing the occurrence of stroke in general. In particular, it may potentially reduce the incidence of fatal stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. However, caution must be exercised when using statins in patients with a history of renal transplantation, regular hemodialysis, TIA, or stroke. Further analyses based on data collected in multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trials and stratified by primary diseases and dose—effect relationship are warranted to substantiate the findings of this meta-analysis.

Now I'll wait for Bobby to jump in and say basically "no they don't".
