Comment:
I have taken fenofibrate for several years now. Started with TriCor (160mg) and about 6 years ago was switched to micronized fenofibrate (134mg). In between the switch I tried Lipitor, however my Triglycerides (TG) went up and HDL went down.

Have had declining kidney function since taking this drug over the past 4 months. Having kidney ultrasound tomorrow. I am really angry to find that this drug can cause kidney problems - and it has not worked very well to solve cholesterol problem. My Dr. is changing the medication.

Comment:
Taking Zocor as well and the combination was lethal. I was getting severe leg cramps. Constipation was also a problem. Probably would have been fine without the zocor, but results were minimal in the 3 mths I was taking it. Cheerios have done just as much help with no side effects. :)
