    Calling Vascepa Users

    It's what Vascepa does that makes it a monster. Some posts slightly edited below due to space. What else do Vascepa users have to say?

    Started taking vascepa last month.Was prescribed by my arthritis doctor.Trying to get me off of predasone for inflammation and a light statin dose. So far it's going great,blood work looks good and very little swelling in my joints.

    I have been taking Vascepa for about 7 weeks. I have know idea what it has done to my triglycerides as I have not had a blood test. My feet swell constantly. About a month into taking Vascepa even my wife noticed the swelling in feet had gone down. They look better than they have in 5 or 6 years. I have heard Vascepa helps inflammation and I am a believer.

    I started taking Vascepa about 5 weeks ago for High Triglycerides. Was taking Lovaza and Niaspan for over a year and with diet and exercise triglyceride levels were lowered considerably but my HDL was staying low. Doctor said about the only thing that will raise the HDL is exercise.I definitely notice a big difference in my mood since on Vascepa. Feel much happier and concentration is increased. It is due to the high EPA in Vascepa. It really is a world of difference. Much calmer and relaxed as well.

    As I mentioned about 6 wks ago I was going to try V to deal wih certain inflammatory issues related to traumatic arthritis.been using 3 GM daily fo about a month. Hard to tell whether it has been helpful. Subtle differences but I do think that it has been of some use in diminishing intensity, frequency and duration. Less lower leg and foot soreness also.
