    I was buying generic EPA and with the coupon I switch to Vascepa. Worked nicely. in 2019 I got a btl for $9.00, in 2020, my deductible changed and it is now +$250.00. Have to rethink this because of cost, a bit high.

    My doctor swears by this drug, but it didn't work for me. I took it for 6 weeks and my triglycerides went up!! I use Fenofibric Besylate and it works.. Been taking it for 15 years.

    Works great, no side effects, I love this drug. People saying they are getting hives and diarrhea from Vascepa are delusional.

    I am not a fan of taking drugs but Vascepa has done exactly what it has suppose to and more. It has improved not only my lipids but has improved inflammation markers and has cleared brain fog. I feel better all over. No side effects. I will happily take it forever. The company has a copay coupon so make sure to get that.
