Question:
How does the new prescription fish oil Epanova compare to Lovaza --and fish oil supplements?

Answer:
Epanova and Lovaza, as well as Vascepa, are the three prescription fish oil drugs approved to lower high triglyceride levels in adults when taken in conjunction with a low-fat diet. However, there may be differences in how well they are absorbed, how they affect LDL cholesterol, and the dose needed to be effective. Fish oil supplements tend to be less expensive, and can provide similar amounts of omega-fatty acids, if taken at the right concentration and dose.  Find out more about how Epanova, Lovaza, and Vascepa compare with fish oil supplements in the Fish Oil Supplements Review >>
