Fenofibrate is employed in conjunction with a low-fat diet, regular exercise, and occasionally in combination with other medications. Its purpose is to diminish the levels of fatty substances, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, in the bloodstream while simultaneously elevating the concentration of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) in the blood. HDL is a type of fatty substance that is beneficial in reducing the risk of heart disease.

Fenofibrate belongs to the category of medications known as antilipemic agents. Its mechanism of action involves accelerating the body’s natural processes responsible for eliminating cholesterol from the system.

Uses and Dosage

Fenofibrate is available in various forms, including capsules, delayed-release (long-acting) capsules, and tablets designed for oral consumption. Typically, it is taken once daily. Fenofibrate can be taken either with or without food. If you’re uncertain whether to take your medication with a meal, consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance.

Take fenofibrate exactly as prescribed, and do not alter the dosage, take more or less of it, or increase the frequency without your doctor’s recommendation.

Your physician will likely initiate your fenofibrate treatment with an average dose and may adjust it based on the outcomes of laboratory tests conducted to assess the levels of fatty substances in your blood. If, after two months of treatment, your test results do not exhibit improvement, your doctor might advise discontinuing fenofibrate.

When taking delayed-release tablets, swallow them whole; do not break, chew, or crush them. If you are using Triglide tablets, refrain from using any that appear chipped or broken.

Remember that fenofibrate will effectively reduce the concentration of fatty substances in your blood only as long as you continue to take it. Even if you feel well, do not discontinue fenofibrate without consulting your doctor.

Is Trilipix a statin?

No, Trilipix is a fibrate, not a statin. Fibrates and statins are two completely different classes of medications.

Does Trilipix cause weight gain?

No, weight gain wasn’t a reported side effect of fenofibrate during clinical studies.
