Side Effects of Fenofibric Acid

There are certain side effects of fenofibric acid that should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately, including easy bruising or bleeding, shortness of breath, and muscle pain. However, most side effects are mild and can be treated easily. Some of these more common side effects include headache, dizziness, and nausea.

An Introduction to Fenofibric Acid Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with fenofibric acid delayed-release (Trilipix™ or choline fenofibrate). However, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor, meaning they either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
