Alcohol/ gemfibrozil: Drinking alcohol can raise the triglycerides and maybe the reason you are on gemfibrozil. Alcohol interferes with gemfibrozil in the liver. Stop drinking alcohol. Tomar alcohol puede subir los trigleciros y esa puede ser una de las razones que una persona le recetan gemfibrozil. Lo mejor es no tomar alcohol.
