Drug Information:
Fenofibrate belongs to a group of drugs known as "fibrates." It helps reduce Cholesterol and triglyceRides (fatty acids) in the blood. High levels of these types of fat in the blood are associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis (clogged arteries). Fenofibrate is used along with a proper diet to help to treat high Cholesterol and high triglyceRide levels. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-Cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help fenofibrate work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking.
