About Modlip F Tablet

Modlip F Tablet belongs to the class of medicines called antilipemic (lipid-lowering medicines) primarily used in the treatment of high lipid levels (cholesterol and triglycerides levels) and prevention of heart diseases and blood vessel blockage. Hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia is a condition in which there is a high level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol and a decreased level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol. Increased level of bad cholesterol leads to a high risk of heart attack and stroke in the future, especially in patients with heart disease. 

Modlip F Tablet is composed of two medicines, namely: Atorvastatin (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) and Fenofibrate (fibrates). Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication that blocks the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase required to make cholesterol in the body. As a result, it lowers the bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins or LDL) and triglycerides (TG) and increases the levels of good cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins or HDL). Fenofibrate is another lipid-lowering agent that works by increasing the natural substance (lipoprotein lipase) that breaks down fats in the bloodstream, thereby increasing its utilization and removal. As a result, it decreases harmful cholesterol like LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides (TG) and increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol). 

Take Modlip F Tablet as prescribed. Your doctor will advise how often you take Modlip F Tablet based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience allergic reactions, hyperglycemia (excess of glucose in the bloodstream), headache, blurred vision, stomach pain, constipation, headaches, joint swelling (oedema), joint pain, muscle pain, back pain, slow heart rate, and nausea. Most of these side effects of Modlip F Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Inform the doctor if you are allergic to any of the components in Modlip F Tablet . If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have hypothyroidism, drink more than 2 servings of alcohol per day, and have a muscle disorder (fibromyalgia), it is advised to inform your doctor before using Modlip F Tablet . Modlip F Tablet is not recommended for children below  12 years of age, as the safety and effectiveness were not established. Immediately contact your doctor if you experience yellowing of the skin (Jaundice), allergic reaction, cramps, or muscle weakness.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia: It is a condition in which there is a high level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol and a decreased level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol. Increased level of bad cholesterol leads to a high risk of heart attack and stroke in the future, especially in patients with heart disease. There are two types of cholesterol, namely bad cholesterol and good cholesterol. Bad cholesterol comprises low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and triglycerides (TG), while good cholesterol consists of high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Usually, there are no specific symptoms of raised or high levels of cholesterol but a large deposition of cholesterol in the arteries (plaque) of the heart. Blocked artery or plaque formation in the arteries of the heart can lead to chest pain, heart attack, or stroke.
