What Is Fenofibrate Used For?
Fenofibrate prescription medication belongs to a class of medications known as peroxisome proliferator receptor-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha agonists. The active agent in fenofibrate is fenofibric acid. Fenofibric acid is the active metabolite of fenofibrate, making fenofibrate a pro-drug. Fenofibrate is thought to reduce triglyceride-rich particles and increase lipolysis by activating lipoprotein lipase and reducing apoprotein C-III production. Fenofibrate helps change the composition of LDL particles from small to large particles and also increases excretion of uric acid. Fenofibrate medication is sometimes prescribed to people who need help managing abnormal lipid and cholesterol levels.
