Gemgibrozil belongs to a group of medications known as fibrates. This medication works by blocking the production of certain types of cholesterol called triglycerides. By lowering triglycerides in people with very high levels may also decrease the risk of pancreas disease. Reduction of cholesterol levels has been shown to reduce the risks associated with heart disease.
