PCP ordered 4 caps a day. TG went down to 250 after a month. The following month, not a whole lot has changed but it was down to 246. Been on Omacor for 4 month so far and haven't seen any SE. Rigth now, my PCP wants me to cut my intake to 2 caps a day, add TriCor 48mg daily, then check lipid profile and LFTs after 3 months of this new regimen.||M||37||4 months ||1/18/2008||1||high triglycerides||Triglycerides where 260 after 80 days on pill up to 262. Developed skin problems all over. Worst on the face, needed to put a cream on twice a day to control. What an expensive waste of money and time.||Had a mole turn to cancer at same time this stuff caused all this skin problem ( may or may not be related). Stopped taking it about 10 days ago and the skin problem is almost gone.||M||58||80 days ||11/17/2007|
