Took for only a week, 145 mg to lower tris from 436 and had flu like symptoms. Stopped taking with the approval of my dr. Have not had blood test done. Doubt if a week would help much.

I have taken Tricor for 6 months. My tri's went from 400 to 133 but it was attacking me knees. So I went to every other day, adding ginger root & MSM anti-inflammatories. Tri's climbed back to 200 but doc was happy with that & no more joint pain. He sees me in 1 year,he is happy with results

Tricor reduced my levels from 760 to 220 within 3 weeks, Along with a proper diet. However, I did notice that my sex drive went from high, to rather non existent after being on the drug for only a short period of time.

Comment:
My triglycerides were a little over 200 when doctor prescribe this medicine. I didn't have that many side effects until I had a comprehensive metabolic panel of blood tests. My kidney function had deterioated that I was in Stage 3 kidney disease function. I looked up the side effects, for Diabetics this is not a good choice as it affects your kidneys!
