    Is anyone else here taking Omega 3? I figured it couldn't hurt after reading an article about it. Are there any negative side effects to worry about?

    I have been taking it on and off but not too faithfully. I know I should stick to it to notice a difference. Personally, I never heard of adverse side effect from Omega 3, 6 or9. Hope you have good luck with it.

    I just responded to someone about dry eye symptoms and Flax Oil.

    I just this last week went to eye doc for exam.

    I mentioned to him about my dry eyes.

    He asked did I take fish oil.

    I said that I take flax oil.

    He told me to up my dose of 2-1000 mg capsules of Flax oil to 3-1000 mg a day...and that should help.

    I had been out of it... and didn't relate the dry eyes to using it. But, I can already tell it helps so much.

    Just thought that I would throw that in.

    I take it for all the other good reasons too!

    My doc at FFC told me to take 3 - 1000 mg a day. So I have been and I have no side effects. Maybe it helps my dry eyes because I don't have them anymore. Just did'nt put the two together.
