From this study (9 months ago):
Many years ago I took gemfibrizil and was sickened by it. Seven years ago I took Lipitor for 9 days and my kidneys shut down. Seven months ago I started Fenofibrate and now have suddenly been diagnosed with diabetes and gall stones. DID THE FENOFIBRATE CAUSE THE DIABETES AND GALL STONES?
From this study (1 year ago):
I take lisinopril and the fenofibrate right before I go to bed. I have been on fenofibrate for 6 months. When I go to bed I start itching really bad and I have insomnia. could my meds be causing this?
