My trigs went from 357 down to 120 in 3 months! I haven't had any side effects either. I've tried Tricor & Advicor & my body became innume to them, so far my body like Lipofen, I highly recommend it.

Since tsking this drug, I have trouble with my bowels, severe pain in lower stomach area. I tried taking it every other day, and on the days I took it I suffered with the same symptons.

Comment:
I was put on lipofen for my high triglycerides. We never got to testing my blood to see how it worked because I had to stop the medication. I was having breathing problems and in general felt like I was very ill! The symtoms got worse when I ran out of CoQ10 and that's when I decided to stop. Also had muscle pain.

I am a healthy 38 year old woman. I had bloodwork done in January 2010 and my triglycerides were at a scary level of 920! After being on Lipofen 150mg for 8 weeks, my level is now at 152!!! This drug is AMAZING and I never had any problems with side effects. I would recommend this drug to anyone that wants to dramatically reduce their triglycerides and/or cholesterol.

Comment:
I am 36 and have been fighting with my triglycerides on a rollercoaster from 120 up to 450 since 2002. In October of 2009 I started on Lipofen and so far it has worked great. I miss not being able to go to the tanning beds, as it suggests the medicine makes your skin more sensitive to the sun.
