With $AMRN being my largest position in my portfolio, of course, I’m taking Vascepa for my cardiovascular health. Why would I buy $AMRN if I don’t believe in the product?
The good news is that after only two months of taking Vascepa (4 gram per day according to recommended dose), my triglyceride level has dropped 46%. The last time my trig was this low was eleven years ago. My total cholesterol has decreased 25% without taking statin. And yes, my LDL level did not go up.
The reason why I want Vascepa so much is because I don’t like to take statin. My doctor has been recommending me to take statin for the last ten years and I keep avoiding it. But I know I’ve to take something. While my total cholesterol is still in need to come down more, I think I will try the natural remedy such as eating more oatmeal and exercise more. Meanwhile, I will keep taking Vascepa to keep my trig low.
I’m hoping that with more time on my Vascepa therapy, my total cholesterol will continue to come down. I’ll let you know after another two months.
Today, I did something that I didn’t think I could do. I literally sold my whole lot of $AMRN just to prove that I could if special situation required it. Without knowing whether the DOW would drop a like rock after the 7% drop on NIKKEI, I sold with the hope of buying back cheap. Unfortunately, price did not go any further down after I sold, so I bought my core and swing trade position back. All at a price higher than I sold for. And Where are the shorts when I need them? Go figure.
My 2 cents.
