Fenofibrate vs Lovaza

Fenofibrate is used along with a proper diet to help lower "bad" cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise "good" cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It belongs to a group of drugs known as "fibrates." It works by increasing the natural substance (enzyme) that breaks down fats in the blood. Lowering triglycerides in people with very high triglyceride blood levels may decrease the risk of pancreas disease (pancreatitis). However, fenofibrate might not lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Talk to your doctor about the risk and benefits of fenofibrate.Omega-3 acid ethyl esters, a type of fat found in fish oil, is used along with diet and exercise to help lower levels of a certain blood fat (triglyceride). It may also raise "good" cholesterol (HDL). In general, this drug is used after your blood fat levels have not been fully controlled by non-drug treatments (e.g., diet changes, exercise, decreasing alcohol intake, weight loss if overweight, controlling blood sugar if diabetic, and regulating your thyroid hormone levels). Lowering triglycerides and increasing "good" cholesterol may help decrease the risk for strokes and heart attacks. Omega-3 acid ethyl esters are thought to work by decreasing the amount of triglyceride the body makes.

After trying 4 other cholesterol lowering drugs, this is the only one that did not cause leg discomfort or any other side effects for me.

Amarin's Vascepa lowers trigs as well and does not have afib warning or raise LDL cholesterol like Lovaza. Vascepa has no fish taste/smell as well. Check out buyvascepa .com to compare the two.

Now that I have switched over to Vascepa everything seems better. No more fish burps and my trig are lower and my hdl has gone up. joint pain is better because of the anti-inflammatory impact of Vascepa.
