If you have high cholesterol, you will probably be prescribed a special diet and exercise to lose weight (if you need it). However, if your cholesterol is too high, in addition to the non-pharmacological treatments mentioned above, you will probably also be prescribed drugs to help reduce bad cholesterol, because the body often does not respond to non-pharmacological treatments alone. One such drug is Lopid, which is well known in United Kingdom and around the world. Here we explain the properties and effects of this drug. If you are already familiar with this remedy, now is the time to order a new pack on our website. You will definitely be satisfied with your online purchase, because we offer incredibly favourable prices, fast delivery throughout UK and the possibility to order the drug without a prescription.

What is Lopid

Lopid is a highly effective medicine whose active ingredient is gemfibrozil, which has a lipid-lowering effect. Its relatively low toxicity, compared to other lipid-lowering drugs, is considered a great advantage.


It is prescribed as an adjunct to diet and other non-pharmacological therapies in the following cases: treatment of severe hypertriglyceridaemia, mixed hyperlipidaemia or primary hypercholesterolaemia, when statins are contraindicated or not tolerated.

The medicinal product is also indicated for the prevention of cardiovascular morbidity in men with elevated non-HDL cholesterol levels and high risk of a first cardiovascular event, when statins are contraindicated or not tolerated.

Contraindications For Use

Like all medicines, Lopid has clearly defined indications for use. First of all, persons allergic to the active substance or to any of the ingredients should not take the product. It is also contraindicated in case of severe hepatic or renal insufficiency, gallbladder disease, gallstones, concomitant use of repaglinide or dazabuvir or simvastatin, as well as in people with a history of photoallergy or phototoxic reactions during treatment with fibrates. Do not take the medicine during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

Before starting treatment, contact your doctor and inform him/her of all the diseases and medicines you are taking. This information will help your doctor to prescribe the correct treatment regimen and to avoid taking incompatible medications at the same time.

Side effects

At the start of treatment, some patients have reported dizziness, headache, dyspepsia, eczema, rash, general fatigue, slight decrease in haemoglobin, haematocrit and white blood cells.
