liver, gallbladder, or severe kidney disease, or those allergic
to any product ingredient.
- FenaCor is associated with increases in liver
enzymes as measured by blood tests. Your healthcare provider may
do blood tests before and during treatment with FenaCor to check
for liver problems.
- Some people who take FenaCor have developed
gallstones. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience
abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting while taking FenaCor. These
may be signs of inflammation of the gallbladder or pancreas.

weakness, particularly when occurring with tiredness and fever,
may be a sign of a serious but rare muscle problem and should be
reported to your healthcare provider right away.

medicines you take, including any other cholesterol medications,
to determine if the combination of these medicines is right for

Indications and Important Safety Information
FenaCor Type IIa/IIb
- FenaCor is indicated as
adjunctive therapy to diet in adult patients with primary
hypercholesterolemia or mixed dyslipidemia (Fredrickson types
IIa and IIb) to: increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C),
reduce triglycerides (TG), reduce low-density lipoprotein
cholesterol (LDL-C), reduce total cholesterol (Total-C), reduce
apolipoprotein B (Apo B).
- Lipid-altering agents should be used in
addition to a diet restricted in saturated fat and cholesterol
when response to diet and nonpharmacological interventions alone
has been inadequate.
FenaCor Type IV/V
- FenaCor is indicated as
adjunctive therapy to diet for treatment of adult patients with
hypertriglyceridemia (Fredrickson types IV and V hyperlipidemia).
Improving glycemic control in diabetic patients with fasting
chylomicronemia usually obviates the need for drug therapy.
- The effect of FenaCor on pancreatitis risk
reduction in patients with markedly elevated serum TG has not
been adequately studied.
- Drug therapy is not indicated for patients
with type I hyperlipoproteinemia.
- The use of FenaCor should be considered only
when reasonable attempts have been made to obtain satisfactory
results with nondrug methods such as diet, exercise, and
reduction of alcohol intake. If the decision is made to use
FenaCor, the patient should be instructed that this does not
reduce the importance of adhering to diet. Diseases or drugs
which contribute to hyperlipidemia should be evaluated and
appropriate interventions begun.
Important Safety Information
- FenaCor is
contraindicated in patients with: hypersensitivity to
fenofibrate; hepatic or severe renal dysfunction including
primary biliary cirrhosis; unexplained persistent liver function
abnormality; and preexisting gallbladder disease.
- Fenofibrate has been
associated with increases in serum transaminases. Regular liver
function monitoring should be performed, and therapy
discontinued if enzyme levels persist >3 times the normal limit.
- Fenofibrate may lead to
cholelithiasis. If cholelithiasis is confirmed, FenaCor should
- FenaCor may increase
the effects of coumarin-type anticoagulants. Dosage adjustment
based on frequent prothrombin time/INR determinations is
- The combined use of FenaCor and HMG-CoA
reductase inhibitors should be avoided unless the benefit of
further alterations in lipid levels is likely to outweigh the
increased risk. This combination has been associated with
rhabdomyolysis, markedly elevated creatine kinase levels and
myoglobinuria, leading to acute renal failure.
- FenaCor may
occasionally be associated with myositis, myopathy, or
rhabdomyolysis. Muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness should have
prompt medical evaluation. Discontinue FenaCor if markedly
elevated CPK levels occur or myopathy/myositis is suspected or
- The effect of FenaCor on coronary heart
disease morbidity and mortality and noncardiovascular mortality
has not been established.
- Other precautions include increases in serum
creatinine that tend to be reversible, pancreatitis,
hypersensitivity reactions, venothromboembolic events, and
- Adverse events most frequently observed in
clinical trials: abnormal liver function tests; respiratory
disorder; abdominal pain; back pain; and headache.
