Oval white pill 116 on one side

White oval pill, just under 1/2” wide, maximum of 1/4” in center, tapers at both ends, 116 (possibly 115) on one side, other side blank. ## Greetings Al, After a bit of research I was not able to find a pill only imprinted with a 116 but I was able to find one imprinted with 115. The description you gave me paired with the 115 imprint comes up as a 600mg Gemfibrozil oral tablet.

Lortab, Gemfibrozil, Bupropion and Lipozene

I take Lortab for chronic pain, Gemfibrozil for high cholesterol, and Bupropion for anxiety. I have gained 40 lbs. Is it safe to take Lipozene (Glucomannan) for weight loss with these? ## Hi Katie, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions or contraindications listed between the medications you mentioned, including the addition of Lipozene (Glucomannan). However, this is not to say that no interactions exist at all, so I would still encourage you to double check with your doctor first; but hopefully this will help add some peace of mind. My best wishes to you on reaching your weight loss goals! You can do it! :D

Hereditary High Tri's

My father died in 1986 of a brain stem stroke due to Triglycerides that were well over 600. He laid in the ICU for a month with no brain activity to speak of. We took him off the ventilator and let him go. At that time I was 22 years young and my brother was 26. The doctors that oversaw my dad informed my brother and I to watch our Tri count as we aged. Sure enough, my liver produces large amounts of Tri’s on a regular basis regardless of diet. I have been on Tricor, Simvastatin and Zocor to little or no success. I am wondering if anyone can relate to my story and has been taking Gemfib. I prefer to not take any statins but I don’t think my DNA will allow me not to. I exercise with weights and cardio, eat pretty well only to have my Tri’s be over 500. My Cholesterol is...
