Also known as Propanoic Acid, 2-(4-(4-Chlorobenzoyl)Phenoxy)-2-Methyl-, Trilipix, and Fibricor
Fenofibrate (Abbott's Tricor) is a drug of the fibrate class. It is mainly used to reduce cholesterol levels in patients at risk of cardiovascular disease. Like other fibrates, it reduces both low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) levels, as well as increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels and reducing triglycerides level. It is used alone or in conjunction with statins in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia.Source: Wikipedia
Patients are most commonly prescribed fenofibric acid to treat hyperlipidemia, coronary atherosclerosis, hypercholesterolemia, and sleepiness.
