Reviews for Fenofibric acid

BABYHUEY April 16, 2009

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “Four months ago my doctor put me on trilipix to bring my triglycerides down from 575. The triglycerides stayed the same but my cholesterol went from below 180 to 225. This happened after I was put on trilipix. I am taking enough pills already so I am coming off of this one which is not working for me.”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “I've been on Trilipix for over a year after every other cholesterol medicine failed. I either had side effects from them or they just didn't work. Trilipix lowered my triglycerides from 600 to the low 200's without a change in diet. I've had only minor, tolerable side effects (mostly bloating feelings) from this drug. I am taking it alone without other cholesterol-lowering supplements.”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “Several weeks after using Trilipix, my hair started to fall out. Everyday, I had to clean large clumps of hair out of my hairbrush. About 2 weeks after stopping using the drug (it was the only change in any of my routines) my hair was back to normal. ”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “I have been on TRILIPIX for ten (10) weeks. Two weeks ago I woke up with a dizziness, seizure, the likes of which I have never experienced. It has altered my inner ear significantly. It is most seriously when in bed, and turning to either side in my sleep pattern, that I fell the room is circulating and hovering. I have to go back to Tricor.”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “I had taken Trilipix for one month with my prior Doctor and it worked great for me and brought my lipids down a great deal. I'm with a new Dr. now and tried Trilipix again because my lipid panel was high again. The very first dose I took I got calf pain and still have it, constant pain, the Dr. told me to stop the medication. Not sure why it bothered me this time and not the first time I took it. I'm on 7 different medicines now for other ailments, which might have something to do with the reaction this time. The Dr. now says I have nerve damage from my diabetes, but I don't think so. ”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “I have been taking Triliplex with a statin for about 2 years. I lowered my triglycerides from roughly 500 to 200. I was concerned about side effects so I quit taking the medicine for about 8 weeks. Any of the issues such as pain did not change. I don't seem to be experiencing any side effects. I had hoped it would lower the levels into the "good" range. The cholesterol levels are good with the exception of HDL being too low.”

“I think this Medicine sucks for me, 12 days in and having classic side effects. Rash in finger knuckles, more tired then usual, pain in back, I am done with this. My Doc will have to come up with something else,I DO NOT like the feeling of this drug, has made exisiting problems worse in my opinion”

“The medicine brought my Triglyceride way down.. so it works (from over 600 down to 250). But I have about 30% overall HAIR LOSS.. this is not good. I am a 50 year old female have had all testing done on hormone levels, thyroid etc. All is normal. I am not in menopause yet either so I am going off the medication. Will substitute fish oils and hope my next blood work does not sky rocket to 600 again.”

“I have had several side effects, not knowing it was the medication Fenofibric 135MG. I started with fast heart palpitations, that lead to loss of voice, and sweating. Then I got a dry cough, and headaches. But the thing that got me the worse was the bladder pain, it is difficult, burning, and painful to urinate and it is dark, cloudy urine.”

Trilipix (fenofibric acid): “Started Trilipix about one month ago, experiencing unbelievable pain in ankle areas having trouble walking. Contacting physician today regarding pain. Suspect pain is related to this drug.”
