If you have high triglycerides and/or high cholesterol, a healthcare provider may prescribe gemfibrozil (Lopid®). This prescription medication comes in the form of a tablet that is usually taken twice a day.

Although most people tolerate it well, side effects are possible and may include nausea, fatigue, and diarrhea.
