If you have had a heart attack or stroke, the danger of suffering another one is even greater
Even if you are on statin, you may not be as safe as you think. If you’ve suffered a heart attack, there’s an increased chance of another CV event within the year.
For 25% additional protection after a heart attack or a stroke, talk to your doctor about taking VASCEPA with statins.*
*In a clinical study, patients treated with VASCEPA had fewer cardiovascular events (17.2%) compared to those who took placebo (22%).
Go beyond statins to protect your heart from another CV event.
Statins are recommended for high cholesterol, but even with well-controlled cholesterol, significant cardiovascular risk remains. Especially if you already had a heart attack or stroke.
Adding VASCEPA to a statin can help reduce this remaining risk.
After a first heart attack, around 20% of patients age 45 and older will have another heart attack within 5 years.
