    Vascepa OTC

    Is it possible after REDUCE IT that Vascepa could be FDA approved OTC? Like Prevacid was?

    I know it is a way off but while we are waiting to double our money the thought occurred to me that it's an incredibly safe drug with fewer or similar side effects than Prevacid and Fish oil in general accepted OTC as a supplement. With the added benefit of not raising bad cholesterol it's probably safer than OTC though the high level is not comparable to supplements.

    Any reason why down the line it would not be OTC possible?

      Actually I think its likely , I think Mochida was trying to do that with Epadel in Japan.
      The issue will be strength of dose ---physican's chk for bleeding issues at higher doses
      If you eat 2 meals of fish like salmon a week you get all the DHA you need as an adult ( AHA ) so pure EPA is better for you then regular fish oil OTC caps --- the older you get

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Prevacid went OTC after patent expiring.
      NEXIUM patent expires in 2014--so Pfizer will be responsible for Nexium OTC in 2014.Pfizer signed a deal with Astra Zeneca--paid 250 mil.$ plus royalty.
