Generic Fenoglide

There are currently no generic Fenoglide products licensed for sale in the United States. There are no unexpired patents for Fenoglide, but no drug companies have chosen to manufacture a generic version of the medication. There is no way of knowing whether any generic versions will ever become available.

Is There a Generic Version of Fenoglide?

Fenoglide® (fenofibrate) is a prescription cholesterol medication. It belongs to a group of medications known as fibrates. It is approved for the treatment of unhealthy cholesterol levels (such as high "bad" cholesterol or low "good" cholesterol) and high triglycerides.
 
Fenoglide is manufactured by Catalent Pharma Solutions and is marketed and distributed by Sciele Pharma, Inc. Although there are no unexpired patents for Fenoglide, there are no generic versions of the medication available at this time.
 

When Will Generic Fenoglide Be Available?

This is a difficult question to answer. There does not seem to be anything preventing a generic manufacturer from making a generic version of Fenoglide. It is difficult to guess why no drug companies have chosen to make generic Fenoglide or when they might decide to do so.
 

Is Fenoglide the Same as Fenofibrate?

Fenofibrate is the active ingredient in Fenoglide, as well as several other similar medications. Some of these fenofibrate medications are available in generic form. None of these other brand-name or generic fenofibrate medications are technically equivalent or interchangeable with Fenoglide, as none of them are available in exactly the same strengths (40 mg and 120 mg).
