Do you use omega 3 and how much epa/dha for brain?
I was prescribed pure EPA by my family doctor zoa.
Yes I know.How much epa?
1 gram it says.
Do you take it all at once?Does it helps your brain?I take 1000 epa and 660 dha.
I take 2 grams in the morning and 2 grams at bedtime.
It was prescribed to lower high triglycerides but I think it helps with depression as well.
Yes,I have that feeling.It’s 6 caps a day.Purified it said.I know it’s good cause I have burps.It has vit E along and is lemon taste.
Yeah good luck with it zoa.
How does one ask for a prescription for this? I can’t even get one for vitamin D
My psychiatrist just wrote ‘vitamin D’ on my prescription paper for the pharmacy to help me
You don’t need a prescription for fish oil capsules or vitamin D, but they do exist as prescriptions as well.
You can buy them over the counter.
I know, I normally do. I just don’t find it to be as potent. Like the vitamin d my former doctor prescribed was great, the ones I do buy, do not need seem to compare. Btw, i’ve tried many.
What is vit D for?
Well for me, there was a deficiency. I needed it because I was always tired. I also see an endo, bc of hormonal reasons.
I too have a vitamin D deficiency.
I take 2000 IU of vitamin D3 over the counter.
Since I dont leave my home much my psychiatrist said I should be taking because im not getting it from the sun just from dairy
On caps said 330/220 epa/dha a day,but i take 6.
6 might be too much.
Ask your family doctor or psychiatrist as to how much you should be taking.
4 sounds reasonable but ask your doctor first.
One cap is 165/110,and I take 6.
