    After 4 months of treatment I was up almost every night with lower back, leg, hip and muscle pain. Also, I developed colon problems and GERD. I would not take the medication again, but am aware of the dangers of high cholesterol and triglycerides. I'm currently trying red yeast rice to help with the condition.

    Have been taking trilipix and lovaza,one capsule each together once a day for over a year but developed severe itching over entire body.Stopped taking both drugs and the itching left after about a week,and hesitant about resuming the medicine since it produced only moderate results with my triglycerides and cholesterol.

    I was on a very low dosage of Trilipix for the first month. I had no symptoms of any kind, so my physician increased the dosage last week. I have been on the increased dosage for 6 days now and the muscle pain in my legs and lower back is intolerable. I threw the medicine away.
