Triglide and Liver Problems: Warnings and Precautions

Because Triglide can affect the liver, it is used with caution in people who drink more than a moderate amount of alcohol or have a history of liver disease.
 
Triglide is not recommended for people with liver disease or high liver enzymes before Triglide is started.
 

Possible Symptoms of Liver Problems

There are a number of symptoms that can occur in someone who develops liver problems while taking Triglide. You should contact your doctor if you have any of the following problems:
 
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
  • Passing brown or dark-colored urine
  • Yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes
  • Feeling more tired that usual.
     

Triglide and Liver Problems: Summary

Although an increase in liver enzymes is one of the most common side effects of Triglide, actual liver damage occurs rarely; but to keep you as safe as possible, your healthcare provider will routinely check how your liver is doing by testing your liver enzyme levels. If they are high, your healthcare provider may recommend lowering your Triglide dose or switching to another cholesterol medicine.
 
If you have any questions or concerns about Triglide and liver problems, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. He or she understands your situation best and is in the best position to give you recommendations.
