Omacor Capsules 1000mg - Each capsule contains the active ingredients eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) ethyl esters. These substances are called omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omacor has been shown to have a protective effect on the heart following a heart attack, and lowers the levels of triglycerides (a fat-like substance) in the blood. 

What is Omacor used for?

  • In combination with other medicines, for treatment after a heart attack to reduce the risk of further heart attacks and improve overall survival.
  • To treat high levels of triglyceride in the blood of certain patients, but only after changes to the diet have been ineffective.

How to take Omacor Capsule 1000mg - Treatment after a heart attack the usual dose is one capsule daily. Hypertriglyceridaemia (high blood triglyceride levels) The usual dose is 2 to 4 capsules a day as recommended by a doctor. Take the capsules with water. You may take the capsules at meal times to help reduce gastrointestinal side effects. The duration of treatment will be decided by your doctor. Omacor should not be given to children. If you miss a dose, take it when you remember unless it is almost time for your next dose, in which case take the next dose as usual. Do not increase the dose to make up for missed doses. It is unlikely for anyone to receive an overdose. Accidental overdose is unlikely to need special treatment.

4.5 stars

Excellent service from Chemist Direct. Fast delivery and the product arrived as it should be. A Little bit expensive comparing to other omega 3 but it is worth it as it contains class A ingredients.

Expensive, but each capsule contains a reassuringly large amount of high quality ingredients - and was the prescribed choice of the NHS!
