    Everything you read about fish oils says they are great for depression and anxiety, but I wonder if anyone has had the opposite reaction? I tried starting them a couple of days ago to help me with the anxiety and panic attacks I am experiencing from my Effexor experience and now Paxil causing me the same problem, and they seemed to make things worse. Also hurt my tummy a lot.

    It's hard to sort out what all is causing what, but I just wondered if anyone else experienced that.

    Google it, or use any search engine you like. My son has seen somewhere, he cannot recall where, that fish oils can increase anxiety.

    Fish oils make me almost suicidal..I know that sounds crazy, but I just cry and cry and cry on them and don't want to go on anymore. I just cant take them.I dont know what it does to me but I stay far away from them. AD make me the same way..I get the opposite effect for some reason..Guess my brain is wired differently or something..
