Once you start taking Gemfibrozil it is highly likely that you'll have to take it long term.

Most times if you have high cholesterol levels just diet won't be able to control it and you'll need to take medication to control it to prevent cardiovascular risks.

Gemfibrozil helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides (fatty acids) in the blood. High levels of these types of fat in the blood are associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis (clogged arteries).

Gemfibrozil is used to treat very high cholesterol and triglyceride levels in people with pancreatitis.

Gemfibrozil is also used to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with high cholesterol and triglycerides who have not been helped by other treatment methods.
