Is a lower dose, i.e. 2 Gm. ever suggested ?I have had several side effects which were severe enough to lead me to discontinue Lovaza.

* Patients should be placed on an appropriate lipid-lowering diet before receiving Lovaza, and should continue this diet during treatment with Lovaza. In clinical studies, Lovaza was administered with meals.
The daily dose of Lovaza is 4 grams per day. The daily dose may be taken as a single 4-gram dose (4 capsules) or as two 2-gram doses (2 capsules given twice daily).
Patients should be advised to swallow Lovaza capsules whole. Do not break open, crush, dissolve or chew Lovaza.
It is recommended to please consult your doctor before you discontinue any med as he/she would know best either to stop or take the med., hope this helps?
