One of the side effects of Lovaza is an increase of bad cholesterol, and ever since I was on Lovaza, for the first time in my life, my cholesterol went up. I decided to stop taking it.
I stopped taking Lovaza mid February, and I had a blood work up last week which showed my cholesterol dropping by 20 points, to return to normal. Could it have been just a coincidence? Hell to the no I say! I strongly feel that Lovaza was increasing my cholesterol, and now that just goes to show that because science gets its hands on something, it is not necessarily a good thing. I’m switching back to good old health food store brands that I used before.
