Vascepa is a prescription medicine used to treat high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia). It is a lipid-lowering medicine meant to be used with a statin to lower cardiovascular risk in those who already have a heart ailment or diabetes. This medication may potentially be used for the treatment of unstable angina. This medication’s active component, icosapent, is an omega-3 fatty acid that increases the efficacy of statin drugs to provide improved protection against cardiac issues caused by excessive triglycerides. 

 What is Vascepa used for?  

  •  This medication is used, along with a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, to lower triglycerides in persons with extremely high triglycerides.
  • In adults, this medication is used with other medications (such as statins) to lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, and certain forms of heart issues that need hospitalization.
