Hi, Recently i have done my Lipid profile Test where my Triglycerides levels are 540 and TC - 141 and HDL - 35. I am male/30Yrs with no smoking and alcohol habits and my parents cholestrol levels are normal. For the past 2 weeks I am taking Lipicard 160mg and started physical exercise for 30 mins. After taking these medication, I am feeling dizziness in the day time, Not able to concentrate on my work, Feel like very tired. Is it because of the medication? Can you please suggest best way to lower my triglyceride level and when to stop my medication? Do i need to take any other test (i.e TMT, echo) due to very high Triglycerides level? Thanks in advance

Hi, Thank you for posting at HCM.

More common side effects of Lipicard may include: Abdominal pain, back pain, headache, respiratory disorders. This medicament should not be used for too long because it causes liver and other organs damage, and this is the reason why you feel dizziness and tired.
You can lower your high triglyceride by following this steps:
1) You should control your weight, by eating high fiber foods, limit sugar and fats. Do not eat eggs, meat. *YOU SHOULD NOT EAT FAST-FOODS*
2) Make a diabet test.
3) Control the functions of your thyroid.
4) Also check your kidney for any disease.

Take Care.
