What is Vascepa Used For? 

Icosapent Ethyl is the generic version of Vascepa; it contains a highly purified ingredient called EPA eicosapentaenoic acid. This medication belongs to lipid-lowering agents that reduce the synthesis and enhance the decrease of triglycerides to treat patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia. Triglycerides are fats or lipids found in the bloodstream converted into the energy between meals; high triglyceride levels may increase the risk of heart diseases and metabolic syndrome.  

Vascepa regulates triglyceride levels in dyslipidemia, an imbalance of lipids such as high-density and low-density lipoprotein. This medication is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in fish or shellfish that is good in decreasing triglycerides and should be accompanied by a proper diet to help lower fat in the blood. It can be prescribed with other medications like statins, which effectively lower cholesterol and protect from heart attack and stroke.
