Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Your doctor may prescribe Lipofen for the treatment of high cholesterol. It should be used in addition to a healthy diet and exercise plan. In most people, it should also be used along with medications called HMG-CoA Reductase inhibitors (statins).
Lipofen works by attaching to the nuclear transcription factor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR-alpha). Attaching to this protein helps to regulate the synthesis of certain types of cholesterol.
The usual dosage is 50-150 mg by mouth once daily with meals.
The active ingredient in Lipofen is fenofibrate.
Lipofen has potential drug-drug interactions, which include:
Tell your doctor if you have a history of gastrointestinal issues like cholelithiasis or gallbladder stones.
Lipofen may paradoxically increase your HDL cholesterol within the first two weeks of starting this medication.
Tell your doctor if you have a history of blood disorders or pancreatitis.
The use of fenofibrate has been associated with an increased risk of blood clots.
Tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney or liver problems before starting this drug.
Usage along with statins may increase the risk of muscle disease.
The most common adverse effects of this medication may include:
