What are the side effects of vascepa?

Vascepa is a prescription medication that contains the active ingredient icosapent ethyl, which is a type of omega-3 fatty acid. Vascepa is used to reduce triglyceride levels in adults with severe hypertriglyceridemia [1]. While Vascepa is generally well-tolerated, it can cause side effects in some people.

The most common side effects of Vascepa include joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. Other common side effects include back pain, constipation, diarrhea, headache, and muscle pain [2]. Some people may also experience nausea, vomiting, or an upset stomach. In rare cases, Vascepa can cause an allergic reaction, which may include hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat [3].

It is important to note that not everyone who takes Vascepa will experience side effects. If you are concerned about the potential side effects of Vascepa, talk to your doctor. Your doctor can help you determine if Vascepa is the right medication for you and can provide guidance on how to manage any side effects that may occur.
