Drug Interactions With Choline Fenofibrate

Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants (also known as bile acid resins) can bind to choline fenofibrate in the digestive tract, preventing it from being absorbed. In order to avoid this interaction, take choline fenofibrate at least one hour before or four to six hours after taking a bile acid sequestrant.
 
Colchicine
Taking choline fenofibrate with colchicine may increase the risk of serious problems, including serious breakdown of muscle (rhabdomyolysis). In many cases, though, the benefits of taking these drugs together will outweigh the possible risks. Discuss the risks and benefits for your particular situation with your healthcare provider.
 
Cyclosporine
Taking both cyclosporine and choline fenofibrate together may increase the risk for kidney problems. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress more closely in this case. This combination of medications should be used only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
 
Warfarin
Choline fenofibrate can potentially interact with warfarin, possibly increasing the risk of bleeding. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more often and adjust your warfarin dosage as necessary.
