What is Tricor?
Tricor is a fibrate drug used to lower cholesterol levels and resolve certain other health issues. Since its approval and introduction in 1975, Tricor has made its name known not only in the U.S., but all over the world. In fact, many generic versions of Tricor can be found on the market, with different names but the same mode of use. Fibrates, the drug class Tricor belongs to, act by reducing levels of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein, and increasing high-density lipoprotein. Triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins are harmful to the health when they accumulate, causing cardiovascular disease and other illnesses connected to it. Besides being a fibrate, Tricor can also be characterized as a hypolipidemic agent that treats many metabolic disorders.

What are the indications for using Tricor?
Tricor is approved for treating:

  • Hypertriglyceridemia – a condition where levels of triglycerides in the blood exceed all healthy norms. Triglycerides are the most common fatty molecule which usually enters the body with high-carbohydrate foods and other fatty products. However, hypertriglyceridemia can also be caused by obesity, genetic predisposition, diabetes, excessive drinking, and several other health disorders. Hypertriglyceridemia has no immediate symptoms, but may cause atherosclerosis, acute pancreatitis, and cardiovascular disease in the long run.

  • Hypercholesterolemia - a condition similar to the previous, only characterized by an excessive amount of lipids in the blood. These lipids come in two main varieties: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). While both varieties carry cholesterol, LDL is most dangerous to health, increasing the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. As is the case with hypertriglyceridemia, the two biggest causes of hypercholesterolemia are poor diet and genetics.
What is the dosage of Tricor?
Generic Tricor tablets are typically sold as 160 or 200mg tablets to be administered orally. The standard dose for treating the aforementioned conditions is 145 mg per day. In most cases, treatment lasts anywhere between 4 to 8 weeks, though individual dosage and treatment term should be determined by a personal physician or medical professional.

What are the contraindications for using Tricor?
Tricor should not be taken by patients experiencing liver disease, severe kidney disease, gallbladder disease, pregnancy, or anyone allergic to the drug. Other risk factors that require prior medical consultation include thyroid disorders, diabetes, heart disease, and pancreatitis. Tricor interacts with several types of drugs, including statins, immunosuppressants, bile acid sequestrants and vitamin K antagonists.

What are the adverse effects of Tricor?
Back pain, myalgia, headache, diarrhea, nasopharyngitis, respiratory tract infection and joint pain are the most common side effects of this drug.
