Lipofen is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of unhealthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It comes in capsule form and is typically taken once a day. By increasing the activity of a particular enzyme that breaks down triglyceride-rich particles and increases their removal from the body, the medicine can increase "good" cholesterol and lower triglycerides, total cholesterol, and "bad" cholesterol. Common side effects include respiratory problems and increased liver enzymes.
