Bezalip SR Description

Your doctor may recommend a prescription for Bezalip SR in order to try and bring your triglyceride levels down if you have hyperlipidemia. Bezalip SR is a fibrate medicine that may be taken with a “statin” drug if you are only trying to reduce your cholesterol as together they are more effective. Some people may be able to manage their cholesterol and triglyceride levels with a healthy diet and exercise before it becomes a problem; for others, this is just not enough to lower these levels significantly. Having very high triglyceride levels can cause inflammation of your pancreas called pancreatitis.

How Bezalip SR Helps to Lower Triglycerides in Your Blood

When taken as directed, Bezalip SR reduces the production of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) in your liver and speeds up the removal of triglycerides from your blood. Triglycerides are the main form of the fat your body stores up to be used as energy later when you are hungry. Bezalip SR also has a modest effect on increasing your high density lipoproteins (HDL), which is known as your “good” cholesterol.

Conditions Treated by Bezalip SR

Triglycerides are what your body is left with after digesting and breaking down the bulky fats that are in your diet. Any carbohydrates, fat, and protein that you consume through your meals that is not used right away for energy, is converted into triglycerides and transported through your blood. If your diet contains a lot of starchy foods, sugary drinks, and even fruit with high levels of fructose, you may find yourself with hyperlipidemia.

The reasons for having hyperlipidemia are many. It could be due to being overweight, consuming too much alcohol, or it may run in your family. Some medical conditions, such as diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, anorexia, or chronic kidney disease could produce hyperlipidemia as a secondary cause. Having high triglyceride levels can put your heart at risk unless you act accordingly and take Bezalip SR (Bezafibrate Sustained Release) and implement a few lifestyle changes.

Before You Take Bezalip SR

Talk to your doctor before taking Bezalip SR if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain it will not harm your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor that could affect your ability to take Bezalip SR safely.

Provide a list of over the counter and Rx drugs you are taking, including dietary and vitamin supplements or herbal preparations as some medications may interact negatively with Bezalip SR or affect the efficacy. Your doctor may need to change one or more of your current medications or make dosage adjustments to reduce the risk of any unintended side effects or interactions.

Precautions and Recommendations for Bezalip SR

You may have an increased risk of gallstones while taking Bezalip SR so be aware of any persistent pain in your upper abdomen, pain between your shoulder blades, or under your right shoulder accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Make regular doctor visits to make sure your hemoglobin, white blood cells, and platelet levels are normal as they can decrease during the first year of taking Bezalip SR.
