 5  For hipertriglidemia At the beginning, some stomach reaction but minor as well as nausea and diarrea. However, these were only temporary and after a couple of days or 1.5 week, there were just gone. My triglicerids and lipids are now under control. Another fact: this medication is less nocive to liver than others. I use to have fatty liver and AST and ALT levels are always within range. M 48 1.5 years

 1  for cholesterol and triglycerides OMG !!!!! This is the WORST medication I have ever taken. First of all you can taste this horrible crap for 3 days after you take it, and it actually made me feel like I was dying. Muscle aches, nausea, headache. I had to go to bed for 2 days after the first pill. What good does it do you to lower your cholesterol or triglyderides if you feel like you are DYING!! F 54 2 days

 3  High cholesterol, can't take statin None This medicine is a good alternative for people who get muscle cramps with statins. But it only brought my cholesterol down 50 points to 240. High cholesterol is in my family, but granny lived to be 96 with a cholerterol level of 360! F 60 8 months

 3  High Triglycerides Tight and sore shoulder, neck, and back muscles. Dizzyness and headaches as well from the tension in my muscles I am assuming. I stopped on my own about 3 weeks ago and the muscle tension and soreness has eased quite a bit, but not completely. I have asked my doctor for something else. M 41 1 years

 3  To lower blood fat in 6 weeks, my blood fat level went from 1957 to 250. And yes, that is not a typo! That was great, but after about 4 weeks I started feeling soreness in my knees, then lower back and eventually in my hands. I was on it for a total of 10 weeks before I could no longer take the pain in my back and hands. I hope that the pain goes away. Been off it for 3 days now and have seen no change!!! M 43 12 weeks
135 MG 1X D
 5  High Triglycerides I haven't noticed any side effects. This works wonders! My numbers went from almost 573 to 193, still a little high but I need to work on my diet/exercise still. F 42 5 months

 1  to lower triglycerides muscle pain in lower back This drug causes so much muscle pain in my lower back that I can't stand for longer than 15 min. without being in pain. I used to be active but since taking this drug it's all I can do to walk to the mailbox and back and then I have to lie down. I'm going to ask my Dr. to change me to Lovaza which is natural made from Omega-3. F 60 6 months
 4  High Triglycerides Taken it a week along with other cholesterol med. No side effects so far. We'll see. M 62 6 days
 1  High Triglycerides I took one pill. The next morning I woke up with my calf muscles aching like i just ran a marathon and had a general feeling of malaise all day (and wasn't out partying the night before). I recognized the muscle pain to be the same as when I started taking Lipitor. I stopped taking Trilipix after one day. I'll try again in a week to see if the same side effects appear. M 44 1 days

TRILIPIX  (CHOLINE FENOFIBRATE):  Fenofibric acid is used along with a proper diet to help lower "bad" cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise "good" cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It works by increasing the natural substance (enzyme) that breaks down fats in the blood. Fenofibric acid belongs to a group of drugs known as "fibrates." Lowering triglycerides in people with very high triglyceride blood levels may decrease the risk of pancreas disease (pancreatitis). However, fenofibric acid might not lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of fenofibric acid. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help this medication work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking. Consult your doctor for more details.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
