Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 days 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.
