APPLICATION

Use with caution in patients with known sensitivity or allergy to fish.

A moderate increase in bleeding time (at high doses, ie 4 capsules per day) requires monitoring of patients with coagulation disorders or patients receiving anticoagulant therapy or other drugs that may affect coagulation (eg, acetylsalicylic acid). ) and appropriate dose adjustment of the anticoagulant as needed (see section “Interactions with other medicinal products and other types of interactions”). The use of this drug does not exclude the need for supervision commonly needed in such patients.

Extended bleeding time in patients at high risk of bleeding (due to severe trauma, surgery, etc.) should be considered.

The formation of thromboxane A2 is reduced during drug treatment. No significant effect on other coagulation factors was observed. Clinical studies have not shown an increase in the incidence of bleeding episodes.

Some patients reported a slight but significant increase (within the normal range) of AST and ALT, but at the same time there were no data indicating an increased risk for patients with liver failure. Patients with any manifestation of liver dysfunction (especially when taking a high dose, ie 4 capsules per day) need control of ALT and AST.

Omakor is not indicated for the treatment of exogenous hypertriglyceridemia (type 1 hyperchylomicronemia). Experience in the use of secondary endogenous hypertriglyceridemia (especially in decompensated diabetes) is limited. There are no data on the use of the drug in combination with fibrates in the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia.

Method of administration and dose.

After myocardial infarction

1 capsule a day.

Hypertriglyceridemia

Initial dose – 2 capsules per day (in 1 or 2 doses). In case of insufficient effect, the dose can be increased to 4 capsules per day. The duration of treatment is determined by the doctor depending on the individual characteristics of the body.

There is no information on the use of Omakor in children and adolescents aged 70 years and in patients with hepatic impairment (see section “Application Features”) and limited use in patients with renal impairment.
