Hi,
How are you? How is your blood pressure? It is good that the initial diagnostic tests were fine. Gemfibrozil  is usually indicated to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with high cholesterol and triglycerides who have not been helped by other treatment methods.  If your diagnostic tests results ( cholesterol levels) are okay, this medicine may indeed be  discontinued. However, if  BP increases and additional symptoms occur, you may need to inform your doctor for proper management.  With Gemfibrozil, regular monitoring of your liver and kidney function is important. Take care and do keep us posted.
