Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in oil from certain types of fish, vegetables, and other plant sources. These fatty acids are not made by the body and must be consumed in the diet. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids work by lowering the body's production of triglycerides. High levels of triglycerides can lead to coronary artery disease, heart disease, and stroke.

I tried taking Zetia and then the doctor prescribed Tricor. I have digestive problems and Tricor caused me abdominal cramps. I started taking Fish Oil - 1200 mg. capsule 3 times a week - my Tri's are down 60 points. I am thinking of taking fish oil every day cause I need to lower my tri's to a safer level.
The statins and fibrates really cause me discomfort so I am taking the fish oil.
Hope this helps.
