Hi Evelyn,
I have not started taking it yet because my Dr. just gave me a slip for my lab work but my Dr. told me that Lovaza works very well at lowering LDL. My triglycerides are reasonably high and I am currently taking Lisinopril and Simvastatin. My Dr. wants me to come off of both of them. He also put me on Fish Oil supplements telling me to take 1200 mg. a day because they help lower things also.

Good Luck,
Karen
