*Omacor: Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in oil from certain types of fish, vegetables, and other plant sources. These fatty acids are not made by the body and must be consumed in the diet. Omacor works by lowering the body's production of triglycerides. High levels of triglycerides can lead to coronary artery disease, heart disease, and stroke. Omacor is used together with diet and exercise to help lower triglyceride levels in the blood. *Omega-3 fish oil: According to Gaziano JM, et al., (2004). Primary and secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. In E Braunwald et al., eds., Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., pp. 1057–1084. Philadelphia: Saunders, adding fish oils (omega-3 fatty acids) to your diet may lower triglyceride levels. The two basically do the same thing, however, the Rx strength medication might be a more powerful way of getting results if your doctor prescribed it rather than telling you to simply diet, exercise and use Omega-3 fish oil. You should still eat healthy and exercise in addition to taking either medication. Answered by Hilton Elling 4 months ago.
Does anyone know if Omacor is different than other fish oil? My doctor said it was much better.... I can get the same thing at CVS or Walmart though....
Asked by Jessia Gertsch 4 months ago.
If you're using it for omega-3 supplemental needs, Omacor is much more efficient and potent (hence the need for RX) than OTC. The makers [Reliant RX, Pharm. Inc.] quote at least 30%, if not higher, efficiency and/or purity (for those concerned about trace amounts of mercury). If not for financial reasons (insurances may cover OTC of a high enough strength to be RX), then think about having to take more than one of the OTC supplements to equal Omacor - those pills are large and in charge.

Does anyone have any experience with Omacor and asperger's?
I just recently heard about this medication. A friends son is taking it to help with his asperger's syndrome and she feels it has helped him a lot. Has anyone else had any experience (positive or negative) with this drug? When did it become FDA approved?

Omacor® is a new medication that consists of a high concentration of highly purified omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in November 2004, this new drug is used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and is meant to serve as an adjunctive therapy in addition to healthy eating habits, and the control of heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels. Hypertriglyceridemia is a condition in which triglyceride levels exceed 500 mg/dL and could be a precursor to serious heart disease if not properly addressed. This medication, which is manufactured by Pronova Biocare and Reliant Pharmaceuticals, was released on the US market in the fall of 2005. Answered by Stephen Lipham 4 months ago.

Harvey's, most of the Cara and SIR corp places, as mentioned those are the bulk, and with regards to the first lady's answer that is almost a Manitoba original, you may also have regional chains that are exclusive to one province only, when I went to Alberta in the 1980's there KFC and Burger Kings were one outlet, and not the same BK I was use to in Ontario were I moved from.

Is Omacor capsules Omega 3 fish oil?
what is it prescibed for, is four 1000Mg a day safe to take.
Asked by Miguel Sankoh 4 months ago.
It depends more on the amount of EPA and DHA... those are the effective parts of fish oil. The typical recommended dose on a supplemental fish oil is 3 softgels that have 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of DHA in each pill. Some recommend more, some recommend less, but that's a normal average. Some products even have a fish oil concentrate so there is more EPA and DHA, which means you can take les pills Normally, you don't need any particular name brand of fish oil as long as you get the right amount of EPA and DHA... and as long as the fish oil is molecularly distilled to remove any trace contaminants of heavy metals (which is common for any fish oil of good quality).
