Like most here we want these shares to move...the problems is dealing with the OTC omega 3......
Can Amarin outlaw sales of Over the counter EPA??? I think it is 27 dollars for a month supply..
Why can insurance cover generic lipitor and doctors can tell patients to buy this OTC EPA?
Did anyone think about this??? Remember something before amarin and others came with omega 3
the consumers were already taking fish oil for years.....
Well spoken from an individual long sitting on a significant number of shares. Do you have any additional material between now and adcomm? BTW, you want these shares to move? Which direction?
Patients don't have to pay for all those doctors visits and blood tests if they buy pure rx grade epa from one of the other gmp certified sources.
Cost of Vascepa must include all of the doctors visits, blood tests, blood draw fees, etc, etc, etc
PlusEPA is 33.99 for 60 capsules and it's 500 mg. You need 4 boxes to get 30 days of 4 grams of "food quality" EPA. That's 136 bucks a month for a product that is not regulated as a drug.
And Ski is right, Bern's in Tampa is the shizit.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Love Bern's! Best steak and wine selection in the US. Fish is pretty damn good too. Make sure you get the full tour of the wine cellar and kitchen! I am a pilot and have hit restaurants from Argentina to Zimbabwe and Bern's is in the top 5%. Gotta double up on Vascepa though!
It is a concern. As more and more OTC epa supplements meet or exceed the GMP standards set for prescription meds, the options will increase for patients seeking to reduce their triglycerides with pure epa.
As of now, there are only 2 or 3 OTC brands of pure epa that are pharmaceutical grade and meet the GMP standards. But, who knows what the future will hold.
These OTC products will stress the sale price/profit potential but the insurance industry will always favor the FDA approved product. This does not mean that patients themselves won't turn to OTC, as they have been for as long as you have been alive. So, be worried about the current and future OTC options for those patients who might decide to take OTC pure epa.
Remember, the majority of people who can benefit from pure epa are not in a position to require intense scrutiny and medical supervision. It is mostly a matter of eating better and you can do that by eating pure epa, even if a Doctor does not prescribe it.
this is investment not a religion dont forget that...
we are in it to make money....we have to be flexible to evaluate all possibilities
This stock took a major loss for a reason.... and there is no guarantee that Vascepa will do magic here
so please get back to your paper reading THANK YOU!
