My natropath suggested if you can taste the repeat, freeze the pills.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

I take one that I order on-line through a company owned by two eye drs. in Ohio--and, thankfully, haven't had any of the repeat fishy taste-but I know what you mean, as I tried a different one before--and had the same issue-so didn't take them for a bit. But glad you feel they are helping you a bit. Anything to help fight off that inflammation in our bodies and in a healthy way is always something to look into.

I take omega-3, too. It seems to help some. My biggest problem is the "repeat" of the fishy taste, it happens frequently.

I do take one that is dr. approved and is of high quality fish oil (Omega-3s)-bit pricey but feel it's worth it for my eyes. Think the high pollen counts lately are what's setting my eyes off--I have a set regimen for morning and evening cleansing of the lashes, eyelids, etc., to help with keeping the glands open to produce whatever oil is possible that protect the eyes, along with cleaning air irritants that may settle throughout the day on my lids and lashes. Even though not "formally" diagnosed with Sjogren's as I wouldn't let them do a gland biopsy-I have all other test results, symptoms and issues that confirm-yup another autoimmune condition added to my list a few years ago.

But I somehow feel the fish oil may be helping with overall inflammation in the body--it's just not that easy to know or tell. And I'd love to know if others have taken it and felt the benefits-as it's to help with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

Having Dry Eye Syndrome and no longer producing the amount of healthy oils and tears, I started taking a great fish oil (Omega-3) supplement approved by my eye dr. With that, comes the anti-inflammatory benefits which can help decrease pain and discomfort in the body!

The only problem is--it can be a blood thinner as well--so with my conditions, I can't take the recommended daily dosage.

Just wondering if anyone else takes fish oil for their condition, and if you feel it helps you.
