Vascepa is a prescription medication used to treat high levels of triglycerides in the blood. However, there are some individuals who should avoid taking Vascepa.
According to the Everyday Health website , individuals who are allergic to icosapent ethyl or any of the other ingredients in Vascepa should not take this medication. Additionally, individuals who have liver disease or are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take Vascepa.
The Drug Patent Watch website  also notes that individuals with known hypersensitivity to fish or shellfish should avoid taking Vascepa. This is because Vascepa is derived from fish oil and may cause an allergic reaction in those who are sensitive to fish or shellfish.
It is important to speak with a healthcare provider before taking Vascepa to determine if it is safe and appropriate for you.
