I find that many psychiatric conditions respond to omega-3 fish oil and recently I tried it on three patients on methadone.Each of them reduced their methadone consumption by 10-20% without any difficulty.This was on a small dose of 1-2g of omega-3.Larger doses of up to 10g daily have been used in other psychiatric conditions and could be tried here.The FDA has determined that 3g daily is safe,except for those with blood disorders.Omega-3 fish oil is available without prescription.You may also find that you smoke and drink less while on it.The dose mentioned here is the sum of the EPA and DHA in the capsules which are typically 1000mg in size and are usually around 30% of EPA and DHA in total.The use of benzodiazepines is likely to drop too while on it.
Note that our ancestors lived in the sea and our modern diet seems to be low in fish oil which would normally make up 20% of the human brain.
