Hi doctor,

My triglyceride level is 423. Do I need a medicine to bring it down? If yes, then which one?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Triglyceride level of 423 is quite high and it has to be brought down with dietary control, exercise and medical management.
  • I suggest you a combination tablet of Atorvastatin 10 mg and Fenofibrate 160 mg once daily at night after dinner after consultation with a physician.
  • These drugs need to be monitored closely as they have major side effects. Thank you.
