Lovaza 1 Gram (gm)

Lovaza® (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) is a fish oil product commonly used for the treatment of very high triglycerides. It is currently the only omega-3 medication available by prescription.
 
The medicine comes in capsule form and is only available in one strength -- Lovaza 1 gram (gm).
 
There is only one recommended Lovaza dose, regardless of your age or weight. The recommended dosage for treating high triglycerides is 4 grams (4000 mg) a day. This can be taken either all at once (as four 1 gm Lovaza capsules) or twice a day (as two 1 gm Lovaza capsules). Your healthcare provider might recommend a lower dosage if you are taking the medication "off-label" for other conditions.
