Gemfibrozil - 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 gemfibrozil prescription with medical providers who can prescribe gemfibrozil medication, including generic gemfibrozil 600 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Gemfibrozil Used For?

Gemfibrozil prescription medication belongs to a class of oral medications known as fibric acid 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 (Zocor), 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 gemfibrozil 600 mg tablets are white and film-coated with an elliptical shape. Gemfibrozil 600 mg tablets should typically 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 gemfibrozil prescription medication.

Can I Buy Gemfibrozil Online?

Gemfibrozil is a prescription medication in the United States. Because of this gemfibrozil OTC (over the counter) 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 gemfibrozil prescription, however, can use Push Health to contact a medical provider who can prescribe gemfibrozil tablets, including gemfibrozil 600 mg medication, when appropriate to do so.

Gemfibrozil - Side Effects

Before using gemfibrozil prescription medication, concerns and possible side effects should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects that can result from gemfibrozil medication 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 tablets should not use the gemfibrozil prescription medication. Gemfibrozil prescription medication should not be used by people with liver or kidney problems or gallbladder disease or people using certain other medications.
