Tachycardia, palpitations and chest pain. A full list of my supplements is here: http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20120803/msgs/1023105.html
But it's only the 2-3g of high-potency fish oil which helps with the cardiac side effects, along with aspirin.

They were suggested by a cardiologist who wasn't certain they would help, but noted that they were good for overall heart health. I wasn't totally convinced until my chest hurt like hell one day, my heart was going bonkers and I realized I had forgotten to take my aspirin and fish oil for a few days. The same thing occurred when I forgot again later. I don't forget them anymore!

I still have (slightly improved) tachycardia, but no major chest pain or palpitations so long as I take the fish oil and aspirin. Otherwise it is extremely uncomfortable. I wouldn't be able to tolerate 100mg Nortriptyline, that's for sure.

Is it worth it? Yes.
