Rick’s Story.

Rick "The Spotter" Harrison is the star of the reality TV series, "Pawn Stars." Rick has a knack for spotting "the real deal.” He always does thorough research and consults with experts. So when Rick was told that he had very high triglycerides, he took a similar approach.

He consulted with the expert: his doctor. Based on their discussion, she prescribed him VASCEPA, in addition to recommending a healthy diet and exercise.

Triglycerides are fats in the blood. Very high triglyceride levels are ≥500 mg/dL.
