Lovaza gave me no aftertaste but right now I am trying Krill Oil. I posted a blog article about this with reasons why.

I can't give you brands seeings I'm a Kiwi, BUT I DO take Fish Oil Capsules. Some of the brands have "odourless" on them, so perhaps you may have some like that where you are. I have never had a problem with taste. Do you take yours with a meal? If you take them on their own, then that MAY cause some of the taste/burping etc.

I take a prescription version, Lovaza, and have had no problem at all... but I can't imagine a frozen gelcap is going to taste like anything at all!...

Good luck!

Naturemade has a burp-less fish oil; however, I'm with the last post - freeze them. Works like a charm!

I have been told to take fish oil pills to improve my cholesterol. However, I cannot stand the smell or taste of them and have a very strong gag reflex. My husband thought he saw an advertisement for fish oil pills without the smell/taste, but can't remember what the product was. Has anyone else heard of said pill? I know I really need to be getting the omega-3s and flaxseed just doesn't cut it for me according to my doctor. So far the whole "could save my life" isn't enough movtivation to overcome the gag reflex, so I haven't been taking any.

EDIT: I don't like real fish either...in case you couldn't guess emoticon
