Lipicard 160 Tablet is a medicine used to treat high cholesterol. This medicine helps by lowering triglycerides and “bad” cholesterol (LDL), while at the same time raising the levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL). Lowering cholesterol levels reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Lipicard 160 Tablet should be taken in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. You can take it at any time of day with food but try to take it at the same time each day. Most people with high cholesterol do not feel ill, but if you stop taking this medicine, your condition could get worse. This may lead to your cholesterol levels rising up again and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. It is important to have your cholesterol levels checked regularly.
This medicine is only one part of a treatment program which should also include a healthy diet, regular exercise, smoking cessation, moderation of alcohol intake and weight reduction. You can eat normally while taking this medicine, but try to avoid foods that are high in fat.
