Omega-3 "beneficial" fatty acids are often recommended as a means of preventing diseases of the cardiovascular system, as well as a number of other health problems.

In March, the European Medical Agency, a regulator of the EU pharmaceutical industry, re-evaluated data on the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acids for secondary prevention of myocardial infarction.

"The European Medical Agency has confirmed that omega-3 fatty acids (OFA), containing a combination of ethyl eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid at a dose of 1 gram per day, are ineffective for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases in patients after myocardial infarction," – reported in the Republican Center for Expertise and Testing.

Thus, these drugs no longer need to be used for secondary prophylaxis. However, as experts emphasize, omega-3 is still worth using to lower triglycerides in the blood.

Patients who have been prescribed appropriate medications to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases are advised to contact your doctor for a suitable treatment option.
