Tricor General Information
Tricor (generic name: fenofibrate / fenofibric acid; brand names include: Lipicard / Lofibra / Lipanthyl / Fenocor-67) is in a class of medications called fibrates which are effective at targeting triglycerides (fats in the blood).
Fibrates help lower triglyceride levels by reducing the amount of VLDL (the triglyceride-carrying particle that circulates in the blood), which speeds up the removal of triglycerides.
Tricor tablets are used to help reduce levels of lipids or fats (such as cholesterol or triglycerides) in the blood, and to help increase the level of HDL (good cholesterol) in the blood.
Tricor, in addition to appropriate diet, is used to treat adults with high cholesterol, with or without elevated triglycerides (Fredrickson types IIa and IIb). Tricor reduces elevated LDL-C (bad cholesterol), total cholesterol, triglycerides and apolipoprotein B, and increases HDL-C (good cholesterol). Tricor, in addition to appropriate diet, is also used to treat adults with high triglycerides (Fredrickson types IV and V).
