Fenofibrate is indicated as an adjunct to diet and other non pharmacological treatment (e.g. exercise, weight reduction) for the following:
For this indication, competent medicine agencies globally authorize below treatments:
200 - 200 mg
From 200 To 200 mg once every day
The recommended initial dose is 200 mg taken daily during a main meal. In elderly patients without renal impairment, the normal adult dose is recommended. Since it is less well absorbed from an empty stomach, fenofibrate should always be taken with food. Dietary restrictions instituted before therapy should be continued.
Response to therapy should be monitored by determination of serum lipid values. Rapid reduction of serum lipid levels usually follows fenofibrate treatment, but treatment should be discontinued if an adequate response has not been achieved within three months.
It should be taken daily during a main meal.
