yeah i had a terrible reaction to l-glutamine which is the precursor to the neurotransmitter glutamate. l-glutamine can be turned into either GABA which relaxes you or glutamate which excites neurons and can cause anxiety.
Anyway I dont really know if fish oil might increase glutamate in some cases but the feeling i get when there is a bad reaction to fish oil is similar to what I get from l-glutamine.

The only problem is that I can't take certain other supplements with it or it makes my depression worse. This is a small price to pay for me as the others never helped much anyway and I try to get all my other nutrients from a healthy diet.

> > I don't know exactly why these cause a reaction but I think that they may raise glutamate when combined with fish oil. I say this because I get a very similar reaction when I take l-glutamine. It doesn't feel like normal depression for me. There's a paranoid feeling that comes with it.
> > One thing I've found is if I lower the fish oil dose Incan tolerate some of the above sups. I usually take 1500mg of EPA but if I only take 1000mg I can take the others. The problem is 1000mg is not enough for me to get the full benefits of EPA.
