The drug increases activity of lipoprotein lipase, catabolism of triglycerides in the very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), accelerates transfer of cholesterol from atherogenic the very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) to the antiatherogenic high-density lipoproteins (HDL), decreases synthesis of VLDL.



Dosage and direction

Take orally 160 mg of Tricor three times a day as initial dose to treat high cholesterol levels or a combination of high cholesterol and high triglycerides. For treatment of high triglyceride levels

the starting dose of Tricor is 54-160 mg a day. It may be gradually increased every 4-8 weeks up to maximal dose of Tricor 160 mg a day if triglycerides do not improve.
