Lovaza use
An_244236 posted:
My doctor just started me on lovaza, 4 pills a day. i hear some people only take 1 or 2 many pills do most people take each day?? also do most people end up taking these pills forever?
bobby75703 responded:
While I don't take Lavaza, I do take 3 pills of Salmon oil per day. Each pill is 1000 mg.
bobby75703 responded:
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.
