Interaction Information:

Comment Statins are the most powerful agents to decrease plasma concentrations of LDL-C and apoB but their impact on plasma TG and HDL-C concentrations is less robust. Fibrates have been demonstrated to improve all components of diabetic dyslipidemia. Therefore, it would be rational to use fibrates as an add-on therapy on top of statins to reduce the residual risk in MetS and diabetes.
