Learn why VASCEPA stands apart from other medications.

Top reasons to choose proven prescription VASCEPA

VASCEPA has been rigorously studied for over a decade and has a history of clinical trial success. Prescription VASCEPA has only one active ingredient, icosapent ethyl. Unlike other treatment options, VASCEPA doesn’t raise bad cholesterol. VASCEPA has a safety profile similar to placebo and is FDA-approved.

VASCEPA follows strict regulatory standards with a patented 3-month manufacturing process qualified to meet FDA drug standards. This process ensures the consistency and stability of VASCEPA. This is important because, if damaged, the safety and efficacy of the active ingredient can vary and is highly vulnerable to derivatives and oxidation/spoilage. Medical societies have emphasized that clinical results with VASCEPA are unique to VASCEPA and should not be generalized to any other product.

Earlier generation medications were studied to see if they reduced cardiovascular events.


Prescription Omega-3 mixtures containing DHA (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) have been unsuccessful in demonstrating benefits beyond lowering triglycerides and cholesterol, including the reduction of cardiovascular events.


Fenofibrates, while proven to lower triglycerides and cholesterol, have not been proven to reduce cardiovascular events.


Common fish oil dietary supplements are not intended to treat medical conditions, are not FDA-approved nor have they been clinically proven to show any cardiovascular benefit. Supplements are classified as food, not FDA-approved drugs, they have repeatedly failed in clinical studies to demonstrate cardiovascular benefits and the FDA has denied to grant them a cardiovascular risk reduction claim despite requests by the supplement industry to use such claims.

VASCEPA is a prescription medicine used:

  • along with certain medicines (statins) to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and certain types of heart issues requiring hospitalization in adults with heart (cardiovascular) disease, or diabetes and 2 or more additional risk factors for heart disease.
  • along with a low-fat and low-cholesterol diet to lower high levels of triglycerides (fats) in adults.

  • Do not take VASCEPA if you are allergic to icosapent ethyl or any of the ingredients in VASCEPA.


VASCEPA may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Heart rhythm problems (atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter).  Heart rhythm problems which can be serious and cause hospitalization have happened in people who take VASCEPA, especially in people who have heart (cardiovascular) disease or diabetes with a risk factor for heart (cardiovascular) disease, or who have had heart rhythm problems in the past.  Tell your doctor if you get any symptoms of heart rhythm problems such as feeling as if your heart is beating fast and irregular, lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest discomfort or you faint.
  • Possible allergic reactions if you are allergic to fish or shellfish.  Stop taking VASCEPA and tell your doctor right away or get emergency medical help if you have any signs or symptoms of an allergic reaction.
  • Bleeding.  Serious bleeding can happen in people who take VASCEPA.  Your risk of bleeding may increase if you are also taking a blood thinner medicine.

If you have liver problems and are taking VASCEPA, your doctor should do blood tests during treatment.

The most common side effects of VASCEPA include:

  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Swelling of the hands, legs, or feet
  • Constipation
  • Gout
  • Heart rhythm problems (atrial fibrillation)

These are not all the possible side effects of VASCEPA. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
