Trilipix Overview

Fenofibrate, marketed as Tricor and under several other brand names, is a drug of the fibrate class. It is mainly used to reduce cholesterol levels in people at risk of cardiovascular disease. Like other fibrates, it reduces both low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) levels, as well as increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels and reducing triglyceride levels.[1] It is used alone or along with statins in the treatment of hypercholesterol...

Trilipix and hair loss

Just took myself off trilipix was on it for almost 4 months. It really dropped my trig cholestrol and other cholestrol. But during the last month I have had a lot of hair loss. I stopped using it 3 weeks ago and still have hair loss the hair is very fine. My hair is normally very thick. Has anyone else had this? ## Trilipix contains the active ingredient Fenofibric Acid, it is used to help lower cholesterol. Does you doctor know you are going off of this medication? Have you discussed it with them? Hairloss is not a listed side effect of this medication, are you on anything else that may be causing it? ## Yes he knows. I just had my blood work done and all readings are normal. My cholesterol is on its way back up. If it were up to me I would never had used this drug. I have been off it ...

Do Not Take Trilipix

I have been taking this medication for 5 years. In the past 5 years I have been to neurologists, rheumatologists, chiropractors, physical therapy, accupuncture, MRI's and the list goes on and on. I have been told I have all kinds of things wrong something different from every doctor. The pain in all my joints especially hips and back and neck was so bad my muscles would quiver and I would be nauses. I was so fatigued and agited with even my family due to the pain - it made me a different person, I slept but not well I could not imagine living another 10 yrs and I am only 43. Never thought it was the trilipix I quit taking it and its all gone within 2 weeks. ## Oh yeah I forgot: yes my hair is falling out it is half as thick as it used to be and very unhealthy and no its not just ove...

Fenofibric acid - Trilipix

Taking 135 mg per day - got cough, cold, sneezing and sore throat. Seems I noticed ED also - I stopped the medicine - I am looking for a better alternative. ## Hello, Sam! How are you? Unfortunately, this is usually the best choice that causes the least amount of side effects. The other options are statin medications, which tend to cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches, as listed by the FDA. How long were you taking it?

Generics for 135mg Trilipix OTHER THAN Fenofibric acid

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 med...

Switched from Trilipix 135 to Fenofibric 35 generic

Trilipix 135 worked for me, but I dropped it after abbive stopped their pap. In 4 months I will know if fenofibric 35 is working in combination with Lipitor 80. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? The Fenofibric Acid is the same thing, it's the generic for Trilipix, but that is the actual active ingredient in it, so it should also work for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, back pain, diarrhea, headache and skin rash. Lipitor is a statin medication and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks. I am on fenofibric 35 and Atorvastatin 80, Lipitor. I'll be get my lab work this Summer, 2015. My only neg. has been HDL, so hopefully it'll work w...

lice hair treatment ok with tripilix?

I takeTrilipix and need treatment for head lice. Is it ok,I know I can't use anti fungal meds ## I hope someone sees this soon! I need to know and am afraid to use treatment until I hear from someone.I have had no problems with Trilipix and have been taking for a year. small leg cramps now and then but that is it. ## Hello, Don! How are you? Yes, a topic product should be fine, because you don't really absorb much of it to react with your medication. You may have some scalp burning and irritation from the lice treatment, though. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Trilipix was a very severe side effect for me!

Trilipix I was on for 2 weeks and I broke out in hives from head to toe. My doc. told me it was the worst he has ever seen. My blood sugar was real high and my creatine and bun was high. This was the sickest I have ever been in my life. I'm 58 yrs old. He put me on prednisone I now have been on for 3 days. I'm now experiancing my arms and neck and hands hurt so bad I can't even turn my head or use my arms and hands. Has anyone else experianced this? ## I haven't personally experienced this same thing, but I do have to say that it sounds more like an allergic reaction, rather than a side effect, which would also explain why he gave you the Prednisone. A side effect is a condition caused by the drug that can be annoying, but tolerable, such as nausea, drowsiness or dizzine...

Trilipix

My doctor prescribed Trilpix a few months ago..I had to stop taking it as I began to suffer acute shortness of breath. I am a Type 2 diabetic with kidney disease. I currently have 50% kidney function. I have been reading the contraindications for this medication and it says people with kidney or liver disease should not take this. I have stopped the medication and have a new appointment with my doctor. Is it possible that for the months I took this my kidneys could have been damaged further? Has anyone else experienced the shortness of breath with the medication? ## I have been taking trilipix for 6 months. I am in good health except my HDL is low which raise my overall cholesteral level, although my LDL is low. I want to stop taking it, I have back pain (upper back) its my muscles, dar...
