While I don't take Lavaza, I do take 3 pills of Salmon oil per day. Each pill is 1000 mg.

Lovaza is for lowering very high triglycerides. Fish oil does that very well, which is why I take it myself. How long you continue to take it is your choice. Lovaza has "not been shown to prevent heart attacks or strokes" according to the official Lovaza website.
