> I think the totality of evidence still suggests a positive benefit. Perhaps not necessarily as a sole agent, but for augmentation (i.e. like lithium augmentation).

You are probably right.

> There is some evidence that Omega3 can still reduce inflammation, even in cases where it doesn't improve mood.

Yes. I just read that.

> Also, I find some of the evidence for bipolar more interesting. Omega 3, biochemically, works more like a mood stabilizer than it does an antidepressant.

Perhaps that's why some people here describe feeling more depressed on fish oil. I wonder if pure EPA would affect these people differently.
