About ANTARA®

What should I know before taking ANTARA®?

The first step in lowering high triglyceride levels is to improve your diet and increase the amount of exercise you get every day. If your triglyceride levels are still too high in spite of diet and exercise, your doctor may prescribe medication.

ANTARA® (fenofibrate) is a prescription medicine that reduces the levels of triglycerides and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol while increasing HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

Please note that you should not take ANTARA® if you are allergic or sensitive to fenofibrate, have gallbladder disease, or have liver or severe kidney disease, or if you are pregnant or nursing.

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding this treatment option. Remember to discuss any questions you may have with your doctor.

Do I need to take ANTARA® capsules with food?

Is ANTARA® expensive?
