Comment:
Initial trig reports were lower, but not in line. Combined with Niacin and B vitamins and pull trigs in line. HOWEVER, issues with sex drive and erection persisted. I've dropped tricor and those conditions stopped immediately. Been 6 mths - Waiting on result from blood test to see how niacin and exercise is affecting trigs.

Comment:
I have expeirienced muscle pain (aches) and muscle tone loss. It is difficult to point to Tricor as the only source of this pain because of ostio arthritis. The coincidence that the arthritis and elevated blood sugars having occured in and around my 50th birthday is interesting. I am looking forward to a generic alternative for Tricor, as there seems to be none available at this time. tad suhm

Comment:
48mg Tricor added to 40mg Lipitor and 300mg omega3 because of triglyerides of 738. Did have minor constipation but it passed. Have had some minor muscle aches but could be associated with increase physical activity. Haven't had my Tri.'s rechecked yet. So can't provide an accurate rating. Hope it works.
