LOVAZA® has been proven to lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol) while maintaining or raising HDL (“good” cholesterol).
The Original Prescription Omega-3
For 15 years, LOVAZA® has helped patients naturally lower very high triglycerides through purity and potency.
Safe and Effective
Unlike over-the-counter products, which do not have to be examined by the FDA, LOVAZA® is molecularly distilled and triple screened for purity and potency.
Medicines are sometimes prescribed for conditions that are not mentioned in patient information leaflets. Do not use LOVAZA® for a condition for which it was not prescribed. Do not give LOVAZA® to other people, even if they have the same problem you have. It may harm them.
LOVAZA® Indication and Usage
LOVAZA® (omega-3-acid ethyl esters capsules) is indicated as an adjunct to diet to reduce triglyceride (TG) levels in adult patients with severe (greater than or equal to 500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia.
Usage Considerations: Patients should be placed on an appropriate lipid-lowering diet before receiving LOVAZA® and should continue this diet during treatment with LOVAZA®.
Laboratory studies should be done to ascertain that the lipid levels are consistently abnormal before instituting therapy with LOVAZA®. Every attempt should be made to control serum lipids with appropriate diet, exercise, weight loss in obese patients, and control of any medical problems such as diabetes mellitus and hypothyroidism that are contributing to the lipid abnormalities. Medications known to exacerbate hypertriglyceridemia (such as beta blockers, thiazides, estrogens) should be discontinued or changed, if possible, prior to consideration of TG-lowering drug therapy.
Limitations of Use:
The effect of LOVAZA® on the risk for pancreatitis has not been determined.
The effect of LOVAZA® on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity has not been determined.
Active Ingredient: Omega-3-acid ethyl esters
Inactive Ingredients: Gelatin, glycerol, purified water, alpha-tocopherol (in soybean oil)
