Bezafibrate Pharmacological Information
Medication Information: Lipid is another word for fat. Cholesterol and triglycerides are a type of fat. When the concentration of lipids in your blood is too high, this condition is called hyperlipidemia. It naturally builds fat in our body and is also absorbed from the food we eat. If the blood lipid level is too high, excess fat attaches to the walls of the blood vessels, which can lead to the formation of small fatty patches growing inside the lining of some blood vessels. This fatty patch can reduce blood flow and lead to heart disease, stroke and circulatory problems. High levels of fat do not make people feel sick, but if left untreated, they can lead to the problems listed above. Bezafibrate prevents long-term cardiovascular disease by lowering fat levels.
If you have high levels of triglycerides or other fats in your blood, you may be prescribed bezafibrate. This medicine is prescribed for you, especially if the statin medicine is not right for you.
