    Excuse Me

    Well, I really don't care how AMRN does and it doesn't matter what I think. The only thing that matters is what the FDA does and what they're doing seems criminal to me. THE SAFEST drug on the planet is refused ANCHOR status when the other drugs clearly don't work and have drawbacks? That's criminal to me.

    Well, I said I was crazy. Even if Vascepa does nothing, it's better than nothing and nothing else is.

    Really? Goodness. Yes, you're right obviously, there are all manner of different endpoints, heck one study shows those figures on the internets. One thing that is indisputable is the % of good vs. bad cholesterol approaches ideal on Vascepa, not so much with Lovaza, and the differences hardly end there. Lovaza shows no benefit to patients with elevated triglycerides and it doesn't really do a whole lot for the patients day to day, although it's better than nothing for some people. There's the atrial fibrulation problem and some other potential side effects that can be somewhat a hassle.

    Note that Vascepa has basically zero side effects. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think they know if you can take enough Vascepa to really hurt yourself. Theoretically yes, but they just aren't sure. The blood thinning could be the biggest problem, Vascepa has other effects counteracting this problem, just like it doesn't raise LDL-C, it doesn't thin the blood beyond a certain point. Certainly, ingesting bottles and bottles every day will cause something to happen, it just might be health, but probably something not good. There are very few "things" period you could ingest with abandon where there might be a possibility of no ill effects. Heck, even drinking too much water can kill you. I think NOTHING else could you say that of, only V.

    But wouldn't anyone who had elevated triglycerides prescribed Lovaza be better off taking Vascepa? Same goes for Niaspan and Tricor. I mean with V you get an elevated mood, less point pain, no flushing, no fishy stuff, reducing triglycerides and reducing inflammation more than all of the other grandfathered in drugs that do nothing or worse. Am I crazy or is the FDA crazy? Both, I know.

    The funniest post I've seen. Yes, it doesn't matter what % if you take milk!! Like saying you can take whatever amount of LSD you want, just drink milk with it and dilute the % down to nothing. No hallucinations there. Now that's science. You should be working with the FDA!

    Thanks. Yes, there are other ways to obtain pure EPA. However, for most people in the US, the advice they take to care for their health comes from their doctors. When their doctors prescribe Niaspan, Tricor or Lovaza that's what they take. I can talk until I'm blue in the face but I've had no success getting people I care about to use pure EPA. I don't blame those people, nor do I place much of the blame on their doctors. The FDA is the culprit here.

    Approve this for the ANCHOR population already. This belongs in the category of FDA gone evil. I believe that some on that deciding panel deserve prison sentences for the harm they've done. It's personal now as I can never be as convincing as the "wonderful" doctors who will not listen to any of the Vascepa hubabaloo. I have a family member now with afib and a friend with several health issues resulting from high triglycerides. Still, neither can convince their doctor to prescribe Vascepa. Why? Because GSK needs to make money and apparently they scratch the backs of those who would abandon their "do no harm" vows, so doctors don't have the go ahead they need to prescribe this miracle capsule.
