Fenoglide Medication Information

Fenoglide® (fenofibrate) is a prescription medication approved for the treatment of unhealthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels. It works to lower bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol), increase good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol), and decrease triglycerides. The medicine comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day.
 
Fenoglide belongs to a class of drugs known as fibric acid derivatives (also known as fibrates). It works by increasing the activity of an enzyme (lipoprotein lipase) that breaks down triglyceride-rich particles and increases their removal from the body. The medication can also decrease the amount of these particles that are made and released from the liver.
 
In order to help ensure safe treatment with the medication, information on Fenoglide should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before treatment begins. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider before taking Fenoglide if you have gallbladder disease, liver disease, or kidney disease (as the drug can potentially worsen these conditions). You should also be aware of the potential side effects of Fenoglide; some of the most common side effects reported with this medicine include abdominal pain, respiratory problems, and increased liver enzymes.
