In reply to is there a downside to fish oil?, posted by babs on November 18, 2002, at 22:17:23
Yes, facial paralysis can occur if you take too much. Bowel problems decline over a few days, but then become beneficial. (If you know what I mean without going into details!!)
My advice is start at a lower does. I never go over 1,000 mg per day and that cured me within days. Its not a high amount, so I shall cut it to about 800mg next year and stay on it for life. I am sure that some will need more than me.
Its not just depression that it can cure, it stabilises mood and seems to control anger as well.
I think that the fish oil thig is just a trace element rquirement in some people, like me.
For twenty years I had another problem. As the darkness of night came on, it always upset my nerves, sometimes badly. But this problem seems to have also gone. I don't know if it was the fish oil, I just hope it never comes back.
