PLEASE - in direct answer to your question, "it's unlikely to harm". Like any medication, its theoretically possible to massivly overdose, but you would really have to be shoveling it down.
Fish oil was of most use to me when I was tapering off prednisone. After being on doses over 60mg for so long, it was really hard for me to make the jumps from 25mg down to 20mg and then again from 13mg to 6mg.
I found fish oil really helped with the recoil I would experience in the first week or two following each drop.
I was taking 18 grams of salmon fish oil per day. 6 x 1mg capsules morning, noon and again at night with dinner.
