Too early to tell if my triglycerides have come down. I have a lasting headache and believe it's related to this medication.

Before going on a regimen of Gemfibrizil, my triglycerides were in the 600-650 range. I've been on the drug now for over a year, and my levels are now between 100-140.

After 3 weeks on the medication I started having severe muscle pain, which I did not know was a side effect until I had been taking the medicine for 5 weeks, which was just a few days ago. My doctor is doing lab work immediately.
