Drug Uses Tricor is useful in controlling your high cholesterol level as well as the triglyceride levels found in your blood and that too in combination with your diet. Usage Following the dosage instructions of your doctor is the best way to use any medication. If you are unsure or do not remember the instructions then you may read the medicine label for more detailed information. You may choose to take Tricor with a meal for its effectiveness. It is recommended that Tricor should be taken at least 1 hour or even 4 to 6 hours before taking bile acid binding resin. Please drink a full glass of water with Tricor. It is very important that you complete the dosage schedule and do not interrupt it in between without seeking prior consultation from your doctor. Taking your medication at the same time each day is a tried and tested method to avoid missing any doses. Drug Class and Mechanism Tricor being a lipid-lowering agent seeks to lower the elevated blood triglyceride levels. It makes the liver produce less triglycerides and thus increases the removal of triglycerides from your blood stream. Missed Dose Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule. Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects. Storage Store Tricor at room temperature (read medicine label if unsure). Always keep it in a cool dark place that is not directly exposed to sources of heat or moisture and sunlight. Protect it from kids and pets.
