What is Lopid?
Lopid is a popular monograph prescription drug used for treating several major metabolic disorders. It was developed by Parke-Davis, a major subsidiary of the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Development of the drug began in the laboratories of this company in the 1970’s and the end product was approved by the FDA in 1986 and has since been sold under the brand names Lopid, Jezil, and Gen-Fibro, though its official name is Gemfibrozil. Lopid belongs to a class of drugs known as fibrates, and functions by improving the clearance of triglycerides in the body and the regulation of cholesterol levels.

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood and stored in fat cells. By improving clearance, Lopid lowers triglyceride levels, which can be harmful to the body when elevated. Lopid also has a positive effect on cholesterol, which is another type of fat in the body. Lopid contributes to a reduction of LDL cholesterol and increases HDL cholesterol levels.

What are the indications for using Lopid?
Lopid is recommended by doctors for the treatment of two conditions.
  • Hyperlipidemia is the first of them. Hyperlipidemia is caused by excessive cholesterol and lipid levels, and if left untreated, it is known to cause cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.
  • Hypertriglyceridemia is the second condition that can be treated wth Lopid. This is a similar condition that often contributes to the development of cardiovascular diseases and atherosclerosis.
What is the dosage of Lopid?
Lopid is standardly supplied in 600mg tablets that should be taken orally in doses of no more than 1200mg per day. It is recommended that this dose be distributed into two helpings, before the morning and evening meals. Lopid should be stored in a cool and dry environment without sunlight.

While Lopid is prescribed to most adults whose individual health matches indications, there are certain contraindications and factors that make it unsuitable for some patients.
