I bought fish oil today


#1

I took 1,050mg at 6pm. I read it’s supposed to be good for your brain. I bought the one that said heart/general/brain


#2

I have taken it off and on since high school. So about 15 years. I honestly don’t notice anything from it, but that could be because I’ve taken it so long that I’m just used to it.


#3

Never found a need for it, though if it helps you then great.


#4

yea I don’t have a lot of omega-3’s in my diet so I think it will be beneficial


#5

Ive read good things about it. It’s supposed to help with psychosis. I’m not taking it now but I have for a while. Didn’t notice anything special but supposedly it helps so idk.


#6

Thanks, I hope to see some kind of difference. If not, it is still a healthy supplement to take :grinning:


#7

My shrink got me on it years ago as there were some good studies done over here about ADHD kids and gains in concentration. I took it for years but probably not in high enough doses. Did it help? probably not but it wasn’t a bad thing to be taking.

I haven’t taken it in years.


#8

Its suppose to support your brain yes. I can tell you it lowered my blood pressure.


#9

Yeah, it’s a bitc*h when your fish start to rust.


#10

Rusty fish is just the worst.


#11

haha. Lubrication for your veins isn’t so bad!

I think it helps the good cholesterol but someone will correct me.

I have shitty bad cholesterol and poor good cholesterol but I suspect the culprit is full fat cheese!

The choices we make but you’ve nothing to lose. Once you lose your sanity then everything else seems to be all right!


#12

Beats snake oil anyday.


#13

Also. I heard if you have gout then Fish Oil isn’t so good!

As a sufferer I’m reluctant to get back on board!


#14

I eat a lot of fish. I’ve been fishing my entire life. I have so much fish at times I give it away. My favorite is salmon. I catch all kinds of species brown trout rainbow trout brook trout lake trout king salmon coho salmon pink salmon atlantic salmon perch walleye pike bass. You name it I fish for it. It’s a fun hobby. I love being outdoors. The stuff is expensive too. I can catch 5 20lb salmon a day. The stuff goes for $20 a lb. I never understood why they charge so much for it. For something they can just net out of the water they charge way too much. I see fish rotting on the shelves at the grocery store because it don’t sell.


#15

HAHAHAHA THAT made me laugh!


#16

you got that right!!!


#17

Too early to tell if it helped, I haven’t done any thing different


#18

Don’t some APs cause hypotension? Lowered blood pressure, dizziness upon standing. And fish oil lowers blood pressure… I’ve been feeling dizzy


#19

I take 3000 mg a day in divided doses. I find that it helps to regulate my mood. I’ve been taking it for many years.

Any1 got medical advice, yesterday I might have accidentally took extra depakote, then I took the fish oil, and last night I took an extra pill of Klonopin to help me sleep (it didn’t help any way). Should I continue the fish oil? I called my pdoc but the secretary talked to her and she was cutting me off and I couldn’t get in depth. I do know I have bad vertigo, and couldn’t explain all the contributing factors
