Hi Ed.

> Lovaza is a convenient and concentrated, but expensive, way of taking fish oil.

It is unconscionable what they charge for simple fish oil. Purified? How much could it possibly cost?

> Why not reduce your triglycerides by taking a more affordable fish oil supplement?

I'll consider that.

> Metformin can reduce triglycerides slightly, but generally less than the usual treatments such as fish oil products or statins.

Hopefully, I will be able to discontinue Abilify in favor of Saphris. If my triglycerides remain high after stabilizing on Saphris, I think I'll have to look seriously into doing something about it. I'm not sure what to try first, though.

What are the long-term adverse effects of taking a statin?

Thanks.

Hope you are doing well.
