High dose Omega-3? Re:.. supplements causing..

What about the high dose omega-3? I recently read 1 published Case Study about exacerbation of anxiety & insomnia associated with high EPA, plus a number of anecdotal reports about worsening mood symptoms in rare cases with fish oil supplementation. My Naturopath has had me on doses much, much higher than I used to take. I stopped everything for several weeks, hard to say if I improved because I go through better and worse periods anyway. Then I reintroduced my "pre-Naturopath" Multi-Vitamin I took for many years containing modest to moderate amounts of B Vitamins, and the High EPA oil but 1/2 the Naturopath recommended dose. My mood swings seem to be worsening.

I should mention, I have also been dealing with situational stresses in recent years, e.g. family relationship & health issues, etc. But my mood had already been slipping before these. Both have worsened - mood and stresses - and probably there is now an interaction going on (stress causing mood issues; mood issues detracting from my "relating/coping" skills).

One last comment re suggestion of possible Bi-Polar - I also do not have racing thoughts or high energy periods, nor most other symptoms associated with Bi-Polar (other than anger which accompanies worsening mood and I feel might be fight/flight associated).
