    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.

    About one week into taking it and I have hives on my belly and a rash on both forearms like poison ivy. Not worth it.

    Trigs have been reduced by half, Iâ??ve lost weight without changing my exercise routine. Iâ??m over 60 and was worried that Alzheimerâ??s was going to be a thing for me.

That was sli ... Show Full Comment
