Your doctor may have already advised you to make lifestyle changes to benefit your health, but they may also consider a medication, like TriCor, as well. When taking any medication, it’s very important to follow your doctor’s directions. He or she knows you and your medical history and has your best interests in mind.
TriCor is available in 48-mg and 145-mg tablets
Tablets shown not actual size.
TriCor should not be taken by people with liver, gallbladder, severe kidney disease, or by nursing mothers or those allergic to any product ingredients. TriCor may cause serious liver injury, including liver transplantation and death. Blood tests are needed before and during treatment to check for liver problems. TriCor may cause serious muscle problems with symptoms such as unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness. The risk for these side effects may be higher when TriCor is used with a statin. Blood tests may be needed to check for kidney problems. Other serious side effects may include inflammation (swelling) of the gallbladder or pancreas (with symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting), allergic-type reactions, blood clots, or possible changes in some blood test values.
