About Gemfibrozil

Gemfibrozil 600mg tab is used along with a proper diet to help lower fats (triglycerides) and raise “good” cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. Lopid generic may also help to lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL). Gemfibrozil belongs to a group of drugs known as “fibrates.” It works by decreasing the amount of fat produced by the liver. Lowering triglycerides in people with very high triglyceride blood levels may decrease the risk of pancreas disease (pancreatitis). However, gemfibrozil might not lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Talk to your doctor about the risk and benefits of gemfibrozil. Lopid side effect can be based on your medical condition.

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, drinking less alcohol, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking.

How to use

Take Gemfibrozil 600mg tab by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day (30 minutes before your morning and evening meals).

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

If you also take certain other drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take gemfibrozil at least 1 hour before or at least 4-6 hours after taking these medications. These products can react with gemfibrozil, preventing its full absorption.

Take Gemfibrozil 600mg tab regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to take it at the same time each day. Keep taking Lopid generic even if you feel well. Most people with high cholesterol/triglycerides do not feel sick.
