I couldn't figure out if it was the fish oil or not.  Still experiencing anxiety even off of it.  My therapist and OB want to put me back on a medication .. different one .. for pregnancy and such.  Don't know what to do.

Yeah, feel the same about the fish oil. I’m still experiencing high anxiety and it’s over a week since I stopped thanking Omega3 . I’m not sure If it was just a coincidence that my anxiety really kicked in while on Omega3 or if it is related.

Well, I’m finally stabilising, yesterday and now today, feeling far calmer. Was it withdrawals or was it the Omega3 ?   There were definitely some benefits while taking a Omega 3. Increased interest in sex was a really big plus. Increased energy overall but my anxiety was through the roof !!!   Will try again some time in the future. Not just yet though.

Hi everyone, I've commented on fish oil previously and how it's helped with brain zaps, brain fog, and head buzzing. I was taking it very consistently for a few months (Nordic Naturals, about 2400 total EPA + DHA) and stopped about 4 days ago as I ran out. I'm leaving on an out of country trip soon and I take the liquid so I figured I'd just buy more once I'm back from my trip. Well, last night was not fun. I kept jerking in my sleep from the zaps and the insomnia was bad. I hadn't cut my dose but am having a rough time getting below where I am now (around 7 mg) and am trying to stabilize. Needless to say, I ran to the store right when they opened and bought more in pill form so I can have them now and on my trip.

Hi @Altostrata, I have just placed an order for Norwegian Gold Fish Oil.  Are you familiar with this brand?  It was recommended in a very early post on this thread.  I need a brand that is burp-free, easy on the digestion.  Are there other types you could recommend.?  I have been taking flax seed oil for years because of sensitivity to fish oil, but not sure if it is effective.   Huge thanks for helping.

G.

@Altostrata My Omega-3 supplements have mixed tocopherols. Do you think it would be a good idea or necessary to supplement that with Vitamin E? Or is the amount I’d get in the Omega-3 supplement sufficient?

Read the label. If your omega-3 supplements contain 400iu mixed tocopherols, you do not have to take additional vitamin E.

It doesn’t say how much Vitamin E is in it, only the ratio of EPA/DHA.

Hi

I'm new to this site and would like to thank the community for sharing your helpful stories and tips.   

I'm  from the UK and have been taking 1320mg epa + dha per day (2x660mg)  I now realise l need to double this to meet your suggested recommendation.  I also need to add in the vitamin E and am looking to start magnesium for anxiety, as per your advice. 

Please will someone help me work out the best way to introduce the extra supplements.  I also wonder whether 3 x omega 3 supplements (1980mg epa + dha) per day may be enough with the additional 400IU vitamin E.

MissyE.

Does anyone know of a fish oil that is not flavoured with lemon or citrus? I cannot have this with histamine intolerance. Just checked my old bottle and it has natural lemon flavouring :( i'm not sure if i'd react but want to be cautious.

You might try Flax seed oil.

Hi Kmart...I too cannot have citrus...and so many things have lemon juice or something else in them. I am looking into omega 3 oil as well..seems they all have something else in them and also oxidation can be a problem.  I seem to have problems with flax as well.  I know grass fed dairy and meats and eggs are good, and fish of course, and walnuts and some veggies.  Ill let you know if I find a pure Omega 3 that is good. Otherwise as Brass said the flax is great.  I have a grinder and have ground it up in the past and sprinkled it on food.  Take care!
