Lofibra Side Effects

Common Lofibra Side Effects

Lofibra has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, side effects are always documented and compared to side effects that occurred in a similar group of people not taking the medicine. The most common side effects occurred in more than 2 percent of the people taking Lofibra and include:
 
  • Chest congestion or difficulty breathing -- up to 6.2 percent
  • Abdominal pain -- up to 4.6 percent
  • Back pain -- up to 3.4 percent
  • Headache -- up to 3.2 percent
  • Runny nose -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Diarrhea or constipation -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Nausea -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Body weakness -- up to 2.1 percent
  • Flu-like symptoms -- up to 2.1 percent.
     
Lofibra can also cause an elevation in liver enzymes. In the clinical trials, this was the most common reason why people stopped taking Lofibra. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your liver enzymes during your treatment and stop your medication if they become too high (see Lofibra and Liver Problems).
