I started taking fish oil about two months ago; however, I was not taking enough to get 1000 mg. EPA until the last month. I think that it began to have a beneficial effect after a month. I'm doing other things, too, such as T3 and T4 supplementation, and TMS. In preparing for the TMS, I was asked to fill out the Beck Depression Inventory several times in November and December. Initially, I was in the "severe depression" category, but by the time I began the TMS in January, I was on the border of "moderate-mild" depression. The improvement had to have been either the regular ups and downs of life, the T3-4 supplementation, or the fish oil. Who knows? I do knows, however, that I am going to continue with the fish oil and thyroid meds as long as I live!

I may take this for granted now, but without the invaluable contributions from Psychobabble, I would never have known that TMS existed, that fish oil was helpful, or that one should take T3 as well as T4 when thyroid abnormalities are associated with depression. Basically, my wonderfully successful treatment of an eight year depression came right from the posts on the board! (with follow-up research of course!) I can never express how grateful I am to have found PB and the intelligent and highly informed folks here. Even though I feel really well now, I want to keep checking in to see what's happening!
