Fenofibric Acid Drug Information

Fenofibric acid delayed-release (Trilipix™ or choline fenofibrate) is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as fibrates. It is used to treat unhealthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and it works by increasing the activity of an enzyme that breaks down triglyceride-rich particles and increases their removal from the body. The medication can be used by itself or in combination with a statin (another type of cholesterol drug).
 
To minimize potential risks with fenofibric acid, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other drugs you are taking (including nonprescription products), as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. In particular, let your doctor know if you have gallbladder, liver, or kidney disease. Also, let him or her know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
