  1. Adjunct to Maximally Tolerated Statin Therapy: Vascepa is indicated as an adjunct to maximally tolerated statin therapy to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, coronary revascularization, and unstable angina requiring hospitalization in adult patients with elevated triglyceride (TG) levels (150 mg/dL) and established cardiovascular disease or diabetes mellitus and 2 or more additional risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

  • Before starting Vascepa, read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist. If you have any questions, ask your healthcare provider for clarification.
  • Take Vascepa by mouth with food as directed by your healthcare provider, usually twice a day. Swallow the capsules whole.
  • Take Vascepa regularly to derive the most benefit from it. To help remember, take it at the same times each day. 
  • Continue taking this medication even if feeling well and continue to follow your healthcare provider’s advice about diet and exercise.


  • Do not crush, chew, open, or dissolve the capsules.
  • Do not substitute other omega-3 fatty acids or fish oil products (such as nonprescription products, vitamins, and supplements) for Vascepa without consulting your healthcare provider first. These substitutes may not contain the same amount and type of fatty acids.

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects, and others may occur. If any side effects persist, worsen, or cause concern, seek advice from a healthcare provider. 

Before taking Vascepa, inform your healthcare provider if you have liver disease, diabetes, thyroid disorder, pancreas problems, bleeding or blood-clotting disorder, allergy to fish or shellfish, or if you consume large quantities of alcohol.
