I had been taking 135mg Trilipix for several years, before being prescribed Fenofibric acid. Now, I have been informed by my Medicare Part D, ( for prescription meds ) provider that, beginning January 1, 2015, Fenofibric acid will no longer be on their formulary, and that I either must find a suitable substitute, or stop taking the medication altogether...OR, find a different Part D provider.
The latter is not really an alternative for me, only due to the fact that my provider carries every other medication that I am prescribed, ( 17 of them altogether ), in their formulary. At the present time, I have not asked my primary care physician about a suitable substitue. WHY should I? From everything that I have been reading about Fenofibric acid, OR Trilipix, one should not be taking the medication if they are also taking Metformin OR any low thyroid medication. I TAKE BOTH, and my primary care doctor hasn't even mentioned these facts to me!! It sounds to me like I need to find another primary care physician,but, living in such a small town as where I live, that is certainly no easy feat. I've tried, and cannot locate one, that is both taking on new patients, AND that accepts Medicare.
Is there any other suitable substitute(s) for Fenofibric acid, that isn't unsafe to be taking, in conjunction with both Metformin, AND Levothyroxine?
