I have been on Tricor for 2 months and have developed severe leg cramps, especially knees. The biggest side effect was loosing the sex drive. I lost almost 90% sex desire. Before starting the medication my TC was 232, TRG 300. After 2 months, TC 213 and TRG 157. Doctor said it worked very well and recommend wait for 3 to 4 months and try Lopid.

I was on Tricor for 1 month. Shortly after starting it, I experienced frequent numbness in my entire left side of my body. Shortly thereafter, my fingers would curl and I was unable to straighten them. Most recently, my hair started to fall out, my hands were puffy, and I started getting leg cramps at night. I stopped taking it just last week, and cannot recommend this drug.

I am a 62 year old male taking Tricor for three months. I have experienced blurred vision, which lasts for up to two minutes, then back to normal. Has anyone else had this happen? Also many of the same side effects others have reported. Thanks for the help.
