Gemfibrozil (Lopid) - Overview

Gemfibrozil, marketed under the name Lopid, is a medication used in managing certain patients with abnormal cholesterol and lipid levels. Push Health can connect people who need a Lopid prescription with medical providers in the area who can prescribe gemfibrozil 600 mg or other dosages when appropriate and safe to do so.

What Is Gemfibrozil Used For?

Gemfibrozil (Lopid) belongs to a class of oral medications known as lipid regulating agents. Gemfibrozil is used in managing patients with lipid and cholesterol issues and is thought to work by decreasing triglyceride and VLDL levels while increasing HDL levels. Dietary therapy is always the mainstay of treatment for people with lipid abnormalities and gemfibrozil, like atorvastatin, Lipitor, Lovaza and simvastatin, should only be used as an adjunctive measure to diet and exercise.

Gemfibrozil - Dosage and Cost

Many providers prescribe gemfibrozil 600 mg tablets twice per day taken orally 30 minutes before the morning and evening meals. After oral administration, gemfibrozil reaches peak concentrations in the plasma within two hours. The timing of oral administration in relation to meals impacts the absorption of gemfibrozil. Gemfibrozil is extensively bound to proteins in the plasma and is primarily excreted in the urine with a smaller percentage excreted in the feces. Gemfibrozil itself is a white solid and, as Lopid, gemfibrozil 600 mg tablets are white and film-coated with an elliptical shape. Lopid 600 mg tablets should be stored at 20° C to 25° C. Gemfibrozil is relatively inexpensive, generally costing under twenty cents per gemfibrozil 600 mg tablet at most pharmacies in the US. Gemfibrozil coupons may be available online and some insurance plans may cover the costs associated with a Lopid prescription.

Can I Buy Gemfibrozil Online?

Gemfibrozil is a prescription medication in the United States. Because of this gemfibrozil (Lopid) OTC cannot be dispensed by pharmacies and one cannot just buy gemfibrozil online as the first step is getting a consultation with a medical provider. People who need a Lopid prescription, however, can use Push Health to contact a medical provider who can prescribe gemfibrozil when indicated and safe to do so.

Gemfibrozil - Side Effects

Before using gemfibrozil, concerns and possible side effects should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects that can result from gemfibrozil use include abdominal pain, dyspepsia, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and headache. Gemfibrozil and alcohol should not be used together. Anyone who has a known hypersensitivity to gemfibrozil or Lopid should not use the medication. Gemfibrozil should not be used by people with liver or kidney problems or gallbladder disease or people using repaglinide.
