    My experience with Ethyl Ester (lovaza generic) is exactly the same as some patients feedbacks: serious leg pain to the extend I tend to go to WE for immediate treatment of which I still not figure out Lovaza's side effects till I read some feedbacks on this website. I stop Lovaza now and my leg pain stop, too.

    Lovaza is a RIP off. Took it for a few years with no meaningful change in triglycerides levels. Then new health plan would not cover it. I switched to otc fish oil from Costco about a year ago. Glucose, sugar and triglycerides readings best in years.

In the two months since I have had to drop dose down to half of what my Doctor wants me to take and I still have irregular heart beats sometimes. It always upsets my stomach, makes me bloat and causes awful gas and terrible rotten fish belches. I am looking for over t ... Show Full Comment

    Never have after taste never have stomach pain or distress, has been good for me at lowering tri's. No farts no ddiscomforts. Have to take 2000 mg in the morning and 2000 gr in the evening very spendy even for generic... but I can count on the amount in each capsule is the same as the next and it is no rancid coming from the pharmacy like a lot of fish oil supplements can be.
