I see a cardiologist and he recommended that I take 3 a day, 1,000 mg each. I also take a statin. When I began seeing him, my triglycerides were rather high, in additioni to my LDL and low HDL, not a good combination. Everything is complete normalized now. One of my sons is an infectious disease doctor who feels so positive about
statins that he says it should be in our drinking water! There is so much more good in statins than not, but that's another story. You can eliminate the fish burps by buying reputable brands that sell quality fish oil. The one I buy is 100% Norwegion oil and I get it from www.iherb.com ... their prices are quite good. Has it helped my fibro? I really couldn't say. I have tried MANY supplements over the last couple of years and I'm not convinced any of them have really helped, besides malic acid, and magnesium. I even eliminated coffee, both caffeine and non because a doctor told me it was causing inflammation and I stayed off of it for two years and never felt any difference. Even if it doesn't help the fibro, the fish oil is very, very good for you and I've just recently read reports that it also helps your brain, retaining memory (my mom has Alzheimer's).
