About LOVAZA

LOVAZA is made from nature, and is the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved omega-3 medicine. Along with a healthy diet, LOVAZA is approved to reduce very high triglycerides (greater than or equal to 500 mg/dL) in adults. LOVAZA has been shown to help reduce triglyceride levels by 45%. Treatment with LOVAZA also resulted in an increase in LDL-C by a median of 45%, from a median baseline of 89 mg/dL to 109 mg/dL at end of therapy.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acids, also known as essential fatty acids, which are vital to human health. LOVAZA is derived from all-natural fish oils. Like cholesterol, triglycerides are fats (lipids) that, in balanced and moderate amounts, perform significant and important functions in the human body. However, when triglycerides levels are too high, they may cause some health problems.

Important safety information for LOVAZA (omega-3-acid ethyl esters)

LOVAZA, along with diet, helps to lower very high triglyceride levels.

If you are allergic to fish, you should not take LOVAZA.

Talk to your doctor about any medications you are taking, especially those that may increase your risk of bleeding.

Possible side effects include burping, infection, flu-like symptoms, and upset stomach.

For more information about LOVAZA, please see the Patient Information or full Prescribing Information.
