Lovaza - Overview

What Is Lovaza Used For?
Lovaza prescription capsules are a medication that contain omega-3-acid ethyl esters. Specifically, each capsule of Lovaza contains at least 900 mg of the ethyl esters - largely a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA - approximately 465 mg) and docosahexaenoic acid 10 (DHA - approximately 375 mg) - of omega-3 fatty acids. It is not fully understood how Lovaza works but may involve blocking specific enzymes and increasing the activity of others, decreasing the breakdown of lipids in the liver, and decreasing the production of triglycerides. Like other medications used in the management of lipid and cholesterol levels, Lovaza should be started after the initiation of a standard lipid-lowering diet and the diet should be continued while a person is using Lovaza. Lovaza belongs to a similar class of medications as Vascepa.
