 2  High Cholesterol and Triglycerides Joints in my hands now ache all the time. I just couldn't figure it out, why so bad. Finally dawned on me I have been taking Vascepa. It does make my fingernails strong and grow like crazy. Didn't lower my cholesterol, but Dr. Said it was keeping Triglycerides down, so kept me on it. Took Lipitor for 10 years and had to go off due to side effects of leg swelling. Leg muscle pain and brain fog. Zeria made every joint in my body ache. F 63 1 years

VASCEPA  (ICOSAPENT ETHYL):  Icosapent ethyl is a type of omega-3 fatty acid, a fat found in fish oil. It is used along with a proper diet to help lower fats (triglycerides) in the blood. This medication is thought to work by decreasing the amount of triglycerides made by the body. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help this medication work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking. Consult your doctor for more details.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
