Answer

The lipid-lowering drug fenofibrate, a fibric acid derivative, lowers serum uric acid levels while reducing very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), total cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. [184] However, the creatinine level increases, and all effects are negated once the drug has been discontinued. [178]
