Fenofibrate (Generic Tricor)

What Is Fenofibrate?

Fenofibrate is a form of oral medication typically used to manage high cholesterol levels in the blood. It belongs to a class of medication known as fibrates, which also includes Clofibrate and Gemfibrozil.

There are many different brand names for Fenofibrate that you may recognize, such as Antara, Fenoglide, Lipofen, Tricor, and Triglide.

Fenofibrate comes in various forms, though it is typically prescribed as an oral tablet or capsule.

How Does Fenofibrate Work?

Fenofibrate works by lowering your liver’s production of enzymes that break down

specific types of fat in your blood, such as LDL, Cholesterol, and Triglycerides. As a result, this medication is an effective way to lower your body’s cholesterol, ensuring that it remains at a healthy level that will not interfere with your well-being.

What Is Fenofibrate Used For?

As mentioned above, fenofibrate is often used to combat high cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. However, it is often used in conjunction with other medications and lifestyle changes.

Common conditions treated through Fenobriate include:

  • Hypertriglyceridemia
  • Hypercholesterolemia
  • Dyslipidemia in Diabetes

What Are the Side Effects of Fenofibrate?

The most common side effects of Fenofibrate include:

  • Abdominal pain/cramping
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation/Diarrhea

The above side effects are typically mild and will likely go away in time as your body begins to adjust to this medication. However, if the symptoms persist, you should reach out to a healthcare provider.

More serious side effects may include:

  • Unexplained fatigue/weakness
  • Unexplained bleeding/bruising
  • Jaundice
  • Respiratory issues
  • Chest pain
  • Changes to urine
  • Muscle cramps/stiffness
  • Photosensitivity
  • Rashes/Hives.

If you notice any of the above symptoms, reach out to your healthcare provider right away in order to determine your next course of action. If you are dealing with respiratory issues or chest pain, you must seek immediate medical attention.

How to Take Fenofibrate?

Your doctor or pharmacist will likely provide you with specific instructions on how you should take Fenofibrate. As such, you must follow their guidance as closely as possible, as this will allow you to reap the benefits of this medication.

If you are taking any other forms of medication, be sure to discuss this with your doctor ahead of time to ensure that the mixture of medications will not counteract each other.

Depending upon the specific brand of Fenofibrate you have been prescribed, you may be encouraged to take this medication with food or without. Check the instructions carefully to ensure that you are administering it correctly.

It is typically advised that users working to treat high cholesterol also work to improve their lifestyle when taking this medication. For example, you should also try to build upon your current exercise routine. This once again will allow for better results.

Once your prescription has ended, reach out to a healthcare provider to discuss your next options. Sometimes, they may prescribe an additional course of Fenofibrate, depending upon the severity of your condition.
