What is Tricor?

Tricor, also known by its generic name fenofibrate, is an oral medication used to lower bad cholesterol. This drug lowers the bad fats in the blood and raises good cholesterol. Fenofibrate belongs to a group of drugs called “fibrates.” These drugs work by lowering triglycerides (fatty acids) in those with high triglyceride levels in the blood. A proper low-fat diet and exercise regime can help aid this medication in lowering cholesterol levels.

How does Tricor work??

Fenofibrate works by increasing a natural enzyme that breaks down fats in the blood. Lowering these fats (triglycerides) may also decrease the risk of pancreatic diseases. Lowering fat and bad cholesterol in the blood is beneficial for a healthy body. Fenofibrate may NOT lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, so talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of fenofibrate.

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor. This drug is usually taken once a day. There are different capsules and tablet forms of this medication and some variations of Tricor should be taken with food and others can be taken without. Ask your doctor about which brand of fenofibrate you are taking.

If you are taking other medications to lower your cholesterol, you should take fenofibrate at least an hour before or 4 to 6 hours after taking other medications. This is important because other cholesterol-lowering medications can bind to fenofibrate, which prevents the body from the full absorption of the drug.

It can take up to 2 months for the results of this medication to take effect. Your doctor will test your cholesterol regularly to make sure this medication is working for you.

Cautions

Before taking fenofibrate, let your doctor know if:

  • You are allergic to other fibrate medications or have any allergies.
  • You have a history of kidney disease, gallbladder disease, liver disease, and alcohol use.
  • You are pregnant. This medication can be taken during pregnancy only if the drug is clearly needed. Breastfeeding is not recommended while taking this drug.
  • You are having surgery. Tell your doctor, dentist, or surgeon about all the prescriptions products you use before undergoing any procedures.
  • You are taking other medications. Blood thinners, such as Warfarin, may interact with the drug. Do not use medications that contain fenofibric acid while taking Tricor.

Side effects of Tricor

In most cases, there are not many serious side effects that occur while taking Tricor, but immediately contact your doctor if you experience:

  • Gallstones
  • Liver problems
  • Persistent nausea/vomiting
  • Yellowing eyes/skin
  • Dark urine
  • Muscle pain and tenderness
  • Chest pain
  • Swelling in the legs
  • Signs of infection

FAQs

How do I store Tricor?

Store this medication at room temperature, away from light and moisture. Different brands of fenofibrate may have different storage needs. Check package instructions for proper storage. Do not store in the bathroom and keep away from children and pets.

How often should I check my cholesterol?

Your doctor should monitor your cholesterol/triglyceride levels every four to eight weeks to determine the effectiveness of your fenofibrate medication. Your doctor may discontinue therapy if no improvement in your cholesterol levels is seen after 2 months.
