Fenofibric acid is a prescription drug commonly used to treat unhealthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels. By increasing the activity of an enzyme that breaks down triglyceride-rich particles and increases their removal from the body, the medication can help increase good cholesterol and reduce bad cholesterol and triglycerides. This drug comes in the form of a delayed-release capsule that is generally taken once daily.
