About Lipicure-TG Tablet
Lipicure-TG Tablet 15’s belongs to the class of medicines called antilipemic (lipid-lowering medicines) primarily used in the treatment of high lipid levels (cholesterol and triglycerides levels) and prevention of heart diseases and blood vessel blockage. Hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia is a condition in which there is a high level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol and a decreased level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol. Increased level of bad cholesterol leads to a high risk of heart attack and stroke in the future, especially in patients with heart disease.
Lipicure-TG Tablet 15’s is composed of two medicines, namely: Atorvastatin (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) and Fenofibrate (fibrates). Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase required to make cholesterol in the body. As a result, it lowers the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins or LDL), and triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Fenofibrate is another lipid-lowering agent which works by increasing the natural substance (lipoprotein lipase) that breaks down fats in the bloodstream thereby increasing its utilization and removal. As a result, it decreases harmful cholesterol like LDL (bad cholesterol), and triglycerides (TG) and increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol).
