Lopid (gemfibrozil) is a prescription medication used to reduce levels of triglyceride (a fat-like substance) and cholesterol in the body. Lowering the amount of these substances may help prevent conditions such as heart disease, angina (chest pain), a stroke, and a heart attack. Lopid should be used in combination with diet and exercise.
Verapamil is commonly used to treat several conditions of the heart and blood vessels, such as chest pain, high blood pressure, and certain irregular heart rhythms. The medication works by relaxing the blood vessels, which allows blood to flow easier through them.
Both meds are different, please do not self medicate or change meds without speaking to your/his doc/specialist, be well & safe!
