My doctor asked me to take this drug because he thought it was the best way to lower my triglycerides after diet and exersise weren't enough. I took one pillat 5 pm with food, and an hour and a half later my chest and neck felt flushed. I got cooled down by having a swim. I had just spent 60 dollars on 30 pills and did not want to believe there were side effects . I developed a very bad headache, flu like symptoms, heart felt weak and I felt "wrong" like I had been poisoned. Did not sleep well, kept walking around the house like a trapped animal. Waited for the dr office to open/ biding my time trying not to go to the ER. By the time his office opened I could sense that I was going to make it by letting the drug wear off. Called pharmacist to ask about taking alieve for the headache. It took 24 hours to feel mostly recovered. One more night of normal sleep and I would say I felt 90% recovered. Disapointing as i had believed this drug could help me.

I take it with my supper every evening. It triggers my acid reflux so bad that within an hour, I am in serious pain. Most evenings I end up vomitting. I will not be continuing this medicine.

I had a bad reaction to a couple of statins (I was feeling muscle weekness after a couple of months and felt like I couldn't remember where I left anything). The Dr took me off them and put me on this- Fenoglide. She said this drug is different than statins and is less drug than other feno drugs due to dosing technology in it. I got my blood results in the mail about a month after starting it with a big smiley from the doc. My cholesterol and triglycerides dropped like a rock and my good cholesterol went up too. My wife loves this drug and so do I!!!! SO far no mucsle cramps and my mind feels clearer.
