Fenofibrate - Overview
Fenofibrate, marketed under brands such as Triglide, is indicated to reduce triglyceride, elevated LDL-C, total-C and Apo B levels and increase HDL-C in some adult patients. People who need a prescription for fenofibrate can connect with licensed medical providers through Push Health who can provide a fenofibrate prescription when appropriate to do so.
What Is Fenofibrate Used For?
Triglide (fenofibrate) belongs to a class of medications known as peroxisome proliferator receptor-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha agonists. The active agent in Triglide 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 - Dosage and Cost
Triglide (fenofibrate) is available as Triglide 160 mg tablets. Triglide 160 mg tablets are round off-white tablets. Triglide tablets should be stored at 20° C to 25° C. The typical starting regimen is Triglide 160 mg once daily without regard to meals. Fenofibrate (Triglide) should be used in conjunction with a lipid-lowering diet and lipid levels should be monitored periodically. After oral administration of Triglide (fenofibrate 160 mg), peak plasma levels occur at roughly 3 hours and steady state levels are achieved with a week. Fenofibrate has a half-life of approximately 16 hours, the majority of which is excreted in the urine. Fenofibrate is moderately affordable at under 50 cents per pill at many pharmacies and some insurance plans may cover some or all of the cost of fenofibrate 160 mg tablets. Additionally, fenofibrate coupons may also be available online for people looking to reduce the cost further.
Can I Buy Fenofibrate Online?
Fenofibrate is a prescription medication and is not available over-the-counter (OTC) in the US. Because of its classification, one cannot buy fenofibrate online legally either. However, Push Health can connect people who need fenofibrate medication with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe fenofibrate if it is appropriate to do so.
Fenofibrate - Side Effects
Fenofibrate, like other medications, can cause side effects. Fenofibrate side effects include abnormal liver test results, increased CPK and rhinitis. Fenofibrate can interact with other medications and should be used cautiously in those situations. Fenofibrate should not be used by people with renal, liver or gallbladder problems. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to fenofibrate should not use the medication. Fenofibrate and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about fenofibrate's side effects should be directed to one's medical provider and pharmacist.
