  • From this study (7 hours ago):

  • I started taking this medication and 6 days later I thought I had a fast and furious bladder issue or urethra issue. Since it was a Sunday night, I called the pharmacist and asked about bladder/urethra side effects. He said there weren't any such side effects. t had a urine test done on day 7 and blood and high white cell count found in urine. I was put on an anti-biotic and the urine was sent to a lab to confirm infection, but the results were negative.
    The antibiotic seemed to help, but not completely, so I am confused.
    I googled until I found this one study that show that others have had this problem and there is a correlation. I will stop taking this medication starting tomorrow. Tonight was day 12.
    I want more information on this.
    Thank you.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I've been taking Lovaza for approx 3 years as an alternative to Statin drugs. I also to 81mg if asprin daily and now rage 10mg of Avorastatin. For the past 5 months I have been experiencing hear palpitations and sometimes it is severe. My blood pressure has always been excellent. I has a stress test and echocardiogram and wore a Holter monitor for 24 hours. Although the monitor confirmed palpitations, the stress test & echo indicated no problems. This is becoming very uncomfortable at times and I'm starting to wonder if it may not be caused by the Lovaza. My cardiologist acted as if there was little evidence to support any advantage to taking Lovaza but said to continue taking it. He said nothing about any ties between this med and palpitations.

    Lovasa has DHA and may cause A-FIB. Have your dr. prescribe Vascepa which is pure EPA and has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. Your dr. will likely not know what Vascepa is so do your own research and show it to him.
