Lopid Uses

Lopid as One Part of Treatment

Lowering triglyceride and cholesterol levels should begin with lifestyle modifications. This includes weight loss, exercise, limited alcohol use, and a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fats. If lifestyle changes alone do not lower triglycerides or cholesterol to desirable levels, certain medications, such as Lopid, may be necessary.
 
Since Lopid can lower both cholesterol and triglyceride levels while raising HDL, a person can decrease his or her risk of developing certain health problems in the future.

Off-Label Lopid Uses

On occasion, a healthcare provider may recommend Lopid for something other than the conditions discussed above. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Lopid.
