Reviews for Fenofibric acid

Trilipix (fenofibric acid) "Started it in August for Triglycerides. Within 15 days I was getting pain in my right side. Quit the Trilipix for 30 days until I say the doctor again. Pain still there. Started taking it again and now going through MRI's, CATS , The big Colonoscopy (upper and lower). You name it, to find a cause, but nothing is found. Blood work is all normal. Just odd that this started at the same time I went on Trilipix."

Trilipix (fenofibric acid) "I've tried A LOT of cholesterol-lowering meds, but can't usually tolerate them for more than a month. Unfortunately, Triplix gave me the same side effects--dizziness, digestive miseries, etc. It's probably a wonderful drug for a lot of people, just not for me. I don't know if it made a difference in my cholesterol levels."

Trilipix (fenofibric acid) "Trilipix reduced my triglycerides from 3456 to 200, yes that's the number, and lowered all my bad cholesterol from 355 to normal, but unfortunately, Trilipix gave me the same side effect, dizziness, joint pain, a lot of muscle pain issue. Now I'm going back to the doctor. I just noticed that when I read all the side effects of Trilipix and now I understand what causes all the pain I was going through."

"On prescription for about 3 weeks and started getting severe joint pain in feet, ankles, knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, wrists, hands and fingers. Have a lot of fatigue and sleeplessness. I feel it is this drug. I stopped taking 1 week ago, but side effects are still bothering me greatly. Doctor did blood work and "everything looks normal". Told me to drink lots of fluids and take Tylenol until drug out of my system."
