Are vitamin world products good?

Just wanted to know if anybody has had success with vitamin world omega3. I got one locally. I also have a health store in town that sells NOW products and natures plus stuff among others.

I've been on 100 mg of Zoloft for 8 years since 05. I started on 50 mg and the doctor bumped me up cause it wasn't working I guess. Six months into taking it I asked if I could get off. He said to wait a year then try. So, after a year I tapered in 25 mg increments and took 12.5 for my final taper dose, and really was doing fine until I finished. I got dizzy bad and got sad and the doctor said I had a relapse and to get back on it. So not knowing to gradually get back on I took 100 mg.

That sent me for a weird loop. I almost lost complete hope but finally stabled out. I guess that's my short version of my story.

Here's what you need to know about fish oil:

 

Omega 3 Fatty Acids (Fish Oil)

 

It's the amount of EPA and DHA in the fish oil that's important, not the particular brand. That said, I use NOW Ultra Omega-3 which contains 500 mg. EPA and 250 mg. DHA per capsule and take three a day. I didn't see results right away, but over the long haul I think it's been a good idea.

 

Another supplement which seems to help a lot of people is magnesium. In this case, it's wise to start with a small dose and work your way up since too much magnesium can cause diarrhea

 

Magnesium - Nature's Calcium Channel Blocker

Psychotropic drug history: Pristiq 50 mg. (mid-September 2010 through February 2011), Remeron (mid-September 2010 through January 2011), Lexapro 10 mg. (mid-February 2011 through mid-December 2011), Lorazepam (Ativan) 1 mg. as needed mid-September 2010 through early March 2012

Thats exactly the one I bought today :) . I even busted one open to see what it smelled like. Kinda reminded me of sushi.
