Tricor is a medication that can treat high cholesterol and high triglyceride levels in the blood stream which can reduce the risk of clogged arteries (atherosclerosis). It does this by lowering the triglyceride levels by having the liver produce less triglycerides.
Tricor should be stored away from moisture and heat at room temperature in the original package.
While taking Tricor, do not drink alcohol as it may harm your liver.
Do not take Tricor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breast feeding.
Patient Family Information : Follow your Doctor’s instructions as well as the prescription label. Do not take larger doses than recommended. Take each dose of Tricor with water, with or without food.

If you are taking other medication, take it at least 1 hour after taking Tricor or 4 to 6 hours before taking Tricor. Do not take other medication at the same time as Tricor.
