Drug Ingredient Information



Information for patients
Drug Information Possibly Effective for: Treating depression, when used with conventional antidepressants. For healing wounds after surgery and shortening recovery time, when used with RNA and L-arginine. Psoriasis. Treating borderline personality disorder, a mood disorder. EPA seems to lower aggressiveness and to relieve depression somewhat in women with this disorder. Reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death in people with coronary artery disease (clogged heart arteries). The reduction of the risk of death is small unless high cholesterol is present in addition to coronary artery disease. In that case, taking EPA can reduce the risk of having a heart attack or other major event by up to 19%. However, taking EPA doesn’t seem to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death, which is due to an electrical malfunction in the heart. Symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. Possibly Ineffective for: Treatment of type 2 diabetes. Treating symptoms of cystic fibrosis. Pregnancy-related high blood pressure (eclampsia). High blood pressure. Treating asthma. Relieving hayfever symptoms including wheezing, cough, and nasal symptoms. Preventing an eye disease called AMD (age-related macular degeneration), when EPA is consumed as part of the diet. Reducing growths in the uterus. Insufficient Evidence for: Prostate cancer. It appears that a higher level of EPA in the blood is linked with a lower risk of getting prostate cancer. Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Some research shows that low blood levels of EPA and other fatty acids are linked with ADHD in children. However, it’s not known yet if taking EPA supplements can treat or prevent ADHD. Schizophrenia. Studies to date show conflicting results about the effectiveness of EPA in treating schizophrenia. Alzheimer’s disease. Research so far suggests that EPA doesn’t help to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Menstrual disorders. Lung diseases. Lupus. Other conditions. More evidence is needed to rate EPA for these uses.

Possible Side Effects
General Information no data available
Common Drug Side Effects EPA is LIKELY SAFE for most people when taken appropriately. It is usually well tolerated. Some people, however, can experience side effects such as nausea; diarrhea; heartburn; skin rash; itching; nosebleed; and joint, back, and muscle pain. Fish oils containing EPA can cause fishy taste, belching, nosebleeds, nausea, and loose stools. Taking EPA with meals can often decrease these side effects. When used in amounts greater than 3 grams per day, EPA is POSSIBLY UNSAFE, and can thin the blood and increase the risk for bleeding. Special Precautions & Warnings: Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about using of EPA during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use. Aspirin-sensitivity: If you are sensitive to aspirin, EPA might affect your breathing. High blood pressure: EPA might lower blood pressure. In people who are already taking medications to lower their blood pressure, adding EPA might make blood pressure drop too low. If you have high blood pressure, discuss using EPA with your healthcare provider, before you start taking it.
