Amarin quarterly product revenue and Vascepa prescription growth

Net product revenue increased 104% year-over-year to $112.3 million, driven mainly by an increase in total Vascepa prescriptions in the US. The increased prescription levels reflect both a higher number of Vascepa prescribers and an increase in the average prescriptions per prescriber.

Based on data provided by Symphony Health and IQVIA, the estimated number of normalized total Vascepa prescriptions for the quarter were approx. 865,000 and 787,000, respectively, reflecting increases of 89% over the year-ago period. The increase in prescriptions were mainly across the US.
