Drugs Home > Generic Triglide
A generic Triglide drug will not become available until at least 2021, which is when the patent for Triglide expires. Until then, you should not buy any drug sold as a generic form of Triglide -- these drugs could be fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous. Also, it is important not to confuse a drug's active ingredient with its "generic name." Fenofibrate is Triglide's active ingredient, not a generic version of the drug.
