Here is My Question:
Can a person on Avonex take Vascepa safely? Can it cause increased risk of liver and pancreas problems?
Vascepa is essentially highly concentrated fish oil, used to lower triglyceride levels
There should be no interaction or problems using this medication if you are also taking an interferon such as Avonex, Plegridy, Betaseron, Extavia or Rebif.
