Hi,

TGR-160 (fenofibrate) is a lipid lowering medication commonly prescribed to treat high triglycerides and high cholesterol levels thus decreasing the risk of heart attack and stroke hence it is not dangerous to heart. Its common side effects include muscle weakness, stomach upset, gall stones, itching, and flushing.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
