A while back my ophthalmologist told me to use Omega-3 supplements for my dry eyes, which fish oil falls under. I fell out the habit of taking them a long time ago. How bad is it that I couldn't even remember to take vitamins every day?!? Now that I have to take meds 6 times a day I think I will ask my rheumy at my next visit if it would be safe to begin taking these again in combination with all my medications.
