If you are already familiar with this drug and know the necessary dosage, now is the time to buy it in our online pharmacy and rejoice at the incredibly affordable price, fast delivery to any corner of United Kingdom and the possibility to buy the drug without a prescription.

What is Tricor

Tricor is a cholesterol-lowering drug for patients at cardiovascular risk. Its active ingredient, fenofibrate, stimulates vascular cell receptors, thereby reducing the microvascular complications of diabetes.

Taking Traicor normalises lipid metabolism in the liver and reduces the lipid fractions that cause atherosclerosis.


The product is indicated as a dietary supplement in cases of:

  • severe hypertriglyceridaemia with low cholesterol levels;
  • mixed hyperlipidaemia in cases of statin intolerance;
  • mixed hyperlipidaemia in patients at high cardiovascular risk;
  • statin treatment when triglyceride and “bad” (high-density lipoprotein, HDL) cholesterol levels are not adequately controlled.
  • Tricor is used in diabetic retinopathy to reduce its progression in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Contraindications include:

  • Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients of the medicinal product;
  • Hepatic insufficiency;
  • established gallbladder disease;
  • severe chronic kidney disease

  • established photoallergies or phototoxic reactions during treatment with fibrates or ketoprofen;
  • galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption, this medicinal product should not be taken.

In addition, Tricor should not be used in patients allergic to peanuts, peanut oil, soya lecithin or similar products, due to the risk of hypersensitivity reactions.

Directions for use and posology

The diet started before the prescription of the medicinal product should be continued during the treatment. The tablets should be taken orally at any time of the day, regardless of meals, with plenty of water.

Consult your doctor before starting treatment. After performing all the necessary diagnostic procedures, the doctor will establish the diagnosis and prescribe the dose of the medicinal product, which may be different from the recommended dose.

It is recommended that adults take 1 tablet once daily. During treatment, the efficacy of the therapy should be monitored by measuring serum lipid levels. If after several months (e.g. 3 months) the expected effects of treatment are not achieved, continuation of treatment or different treatment regimens should be considered.
