Precaution

Do NOT use Fenofibrate if: you are allergic to any ingredient in Fenofibrate; you have gallbladder problems, liver problems (including cirrhosis), or severe kidney problems; you are breast-feeding or pregnant.

Fenofibrate may cause dizziness or lightheadedness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Fenofibrate with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it. Lab tests, including liver function, kidney function, blood cholesterol, and other blood tests, may be performed while you use Fenofibrate. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. If you plan on becoming pregnant, contact your doctor.

Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following: HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (eg, simvastatin) because the risk of serious muscle problems leading to kidney failure may be increased; Immunosuppressants (eg, cyclosporine) or other medicines that may harm the kidney (eg, aminoglycoside antibiotics [eg, gentamicin], amphotericin B, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs] [eg, ibuprofen] tacrolimus, vancomycin) because they may decrease Fenofibrate 's excretion and increase the risk of its side effects; Anticoagulants (eg, warfarin) or sulfonylureas (eg, glipizide) because the risk of their side effects may be increased by Fenofibrate; Beta-blockers (eg, propranolol); estrogen, or thiazide diuretic (eg, hydrochlorothiazide).
