Lopid Drug Information
Gemfibrozil is used along with a proper diet to help lower fats (triglycerides) and raise "good" cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It may also help to lower "bad" cholesterol (LDL). Gemfibrozil belongs to a group of drugs known as "fibrates." It works by decreasing the amount of fat produced by the liver. Lowering triglycerides in people with very high triglyceride blood levels may decrease the risk of pancreas disease (pancreatitis). However, gemfibrozil might not lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Talk to your doctor about the risk and benefits of gemfibrozil. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help Lopid work better include exercising, drinking less alcohol, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking.
How to Use Lopid
Take Lopid by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day (30 minutes before your morning and evening meals). Dosage of Lopid is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you also take certain other drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take gemfibrozil at least 1 hour before or at least 4-6 hours after taking these medications. These products can react with gemfibrozil, preventing its full absorption. Take Lopid regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to take it at the same times each day. It is important to continue taking Lopid even if you feel well. Most people with high cholesterol/triglycerides do not feel sick. It is very important to continue to follow your doctor's advice about diet and exercise. It may take up to 3 months before you get the full benefit of Lopid.
Before taking gemfibrozil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other "fibrates" (such as fenofibrate); or if you have any other allergies. Lopid may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Lopid, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease (such as biliary cirrhosis), gallbladder disease, kidney disease, alcohol use. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Lopid is not recommended for use during pregnancy. Consult your doctor for more details. It is unknown if Lopid passes into breast milk. Because of the possible risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Lopid is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Lopid, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
