Uses

Gemfibrozil is used in the treatment of increased triglycerides levels in blood and increased cholesterol levels in blood.

How it Works

Gemfibrozil then works by minimizing the risk of heart attacks and strokes by this. Gemfibrozil can also be used by those at risk of pancreatic disease and those suffering from pancreatitis.

Unusual taste in the mouth,

Vomiting,

Introduction

This drug is generally used to reduce triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood. If these fatty acids are not reduced in the blood, there will be a high risk of clogged arteries to develop. It is also very helpful to treat pancreatic disease.

Use

High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides can cause many serious problems to a person. By taking Gemfibrozil, one can reduce the levels of fatty acids in the blood and hence reduce the risks of heart attack, stroke, or other heart rhythmic problems that are caused by them. It can also help treat very high cholesterol levels in patients with pancreatitis.

Dosage and administration

This drug is available in capsule form with 300 mg and 600 mg doses. Dosage of this drug depends on the individual response to the treatment and other medical conditions. Usually, it is prescribed to be taken twice a day, at least half an hour before your meals. If you are using any other drugs to control cholesterol levels in your body, do not take this drug along with them and give it at least 2 to 3 hours duration before taking it. Don’t forget to take these doses at the same time on a regular basis. Along with taking this medication properly, practice a healthy diet and engage in exercise to get the most benefits out of it. Do not vary the dosage that has been recommended by your doctor or pharmacist. Get your prescription refilled by your doctor before it gets exhausted and do not discontinue the dosage without consulting your doctor.
