Buy Lopid brand or generic Gemfibrozil prescription drug from Canada
Why is Lopid prescribed?
Gemfibrozil (Lopid) is being prescribed in combination with a proper and healthy diet to reduce elevated cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood caused by a poor eating lifestyle.
What does it do?
Occasional consumption of red meat products, full-fat dairy goods such as cheese, milk, and yogurt, and animal fats like butter, margarine, and spreads may cause several illnesses like heart disease due to poor diet associated with hypercholesterolemia and dyslipidemia. Patients with high levels of cholesterol and fats in the blood are treated with anti-lipidemic agents such as Gemfibrozil.
Gemfibrozil, a fibric acid derivative, works by increasing the lipoprotein lipase enzyme and the production of apoprotein C-III, thus, breaking down unnecessary fats in the blood.
How should I take it?
Lopid is available as a 600mg tablet that is intended for oral administration as a whole, not to be crushed or chewed, and should be taken 30 minutes before a meal as directed by the doctor.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is strictly advised that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
Taking the dose properly at the scheduled time is needed to attain the desired effect of the drug. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and catch the next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Lopid?
Before taking Gemfibrozil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had kidney disease, gallbladder disease, hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver disease, and gallstones.
Consult your doctor regarding all the other medications you use before getting surgery.
