Omega 3 and kids side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Omega 3 and kids side effects


Avatar n tn Scientific Evidence Two types of fatty acids are considered essential. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids cannot be synthesized in the body, and must be obtained from the diet. The omega-6 fatty acids are distributed evenly in most tissues and easily obtained through food sources commonly found in the American diet, but omega-3 fatty acids are concentrated in a few tissues including the brain.
Avatar m tn Kids will be kids and will act out. Check out your parenting skills and the way you discipline your child. Doctors are pill happy. Don't try any more medications, for the body has its own chemical balance and dependicy on a pill retards the body from producing its natural chemicals. Too many side effects in pills is more of a problem than the problem you are trying to treat. Try counseling for him and learn what they do and practice what they do. There is always an alternative to medication.
Avatar n tn I will definitely look into the Inosital and Omega 3 for his problems. Yes obsessing thoughts are anothr sign of OCD. My son has more generalized anxiety with some aspects of OCD. He doesn't have any rituals. He does allot of tooth chomping, ( opening and closing his mouth quickly), blinking, and sometimes vocal noises- it comes and goes. He worries so much. If you check out generalized anxiety you'll see that these 3 things sometimes go together: anxiety/ocd/and tourettes/tic disorder.
20063166 tn?1489404667 I tried so many supplements but none really helped bar the magnesium and vit d, Omega 3 and co q10 are useful tho,as kids we were fed fish liver oil If you have a healthy diet and haven't been diagnosed with a particular deficiency save your money!
Avatar f tn Another thing, if you start getting any side effects, get on top of them right away. They snowball. If you get side effects, post and we can tell you what remedies we uded for them. Good luck!
480448 tn?1426952138 or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....
Avatar n tn Well it didn't and my son is now 10 and having 3 different kind of seizures and has tried 7 medicines witch have not worked ,and he is still hipper and cant learn and the medicines he is on now for just his seizures witch are 5 still dont stop him from having seizures.and on June 24th he had the VNS surgery and they just turned it on yesterday. you see I was told once you have the side effects you can't make them just go away.
Avatar f tn com/weight.htm for more information. They suggest taking 6 CLA capsules and 4 Omega 3 capsules per day and no eating after 6:00pm.
267079 tn?1195146570 Dark chocolate and nuts have omega-3 fatty acids and helps to keep cholesterol down. Try to stay away from the big candy (chocolate bars). Mix the candy with the above ideas and you have a healthier treat than candy alone. The focus for Halloween should be for the children to have fun and candy does not have to be center of attraction. Relax and have fun with the kids, and do not let the boogie man get you!
Avatar m tn A study of U.S. medical students showed, over 12 weeks, that those who received high-dose omega-3 fatty acids (2,496 mg once daily providing 2,085 mg EPA and 348 mg DHA), had a 20% reduction in anxiety symptoms compared to those receiving placebo treatment. Treated students also had a 14% decrease in a marker of inflammation (stimulated IL-6 production) (Kiecolt-Glaser, Brain Behav Immun 2011).
Avatar n tn Would stumble on his own feet, would fall down the stairs, would be so exhausted at night that he could not do hishomework and would forget everything. We have tried a couple of different medication, the side effects were worst then the syndrome itself. BUT ADHD is a disease, it's a neurological disease. If a child has tourette syndrome, nobody will try to cure them with a special healthy diet. It's also not a lack of discipline or a child just being stubborn and acting up for attention.
Avatar n tn His mother is in and out of the state I never were she is we may hear from a friend she is back here or coming back if we should happen to run into her she will tell him she is sending something in the mail which never arrives his father is my son and lives 2hrs away has a wife and a daughter (who is normal) we see them as often as poss.
Avatar f tn Try giving Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 along with Children Multivitamin every day,and this doesn't have all the bad side effects and they need them .They have helped my some to calm down to learn better. My son still has Seizures every day even on Medicines and a VNS put in last year in June. I know of a young girl who has taken abilify and it did nothing for her. Dose your son have an IEP and talk to the School Counselor every week?
Avatar m tn They list common side effects, less common side effect and rare side effects. If you haven't been to check out the website, I highly recommend you go there and check it out. I noticed quite a few of the symptoms you are experiencing are side effects of Citalopram. One of the rare side effects of Citalopram is difficulty with concentrating, some less common side effects are blurred vision, confusion, loss of memory and headaches.
Avatar n tn 00. Some days I am completely useless and just cannot seem to get anything to work. I try to work from home and often nothing gets done. I have had carpal tunnel release operations on both hands as I worked as a computer systems administrator for about 13 years. Today my arms and legs feel like I have been lifting weights for hours. They feel like they have that Lactic Acid build up that makes them sore. I have not done anything out of the ordinary the last few days.
535904 tn?1213468238 don't take the effexor. i had terrible side effects from it and it's extremely hard to get off of. if your anxiety is'nt that bad all the time then why not try the natural route? you can get magnesium from some foods so i would try that before going to supplements. a couple of calming foods are milk and turkey. do some research on the web about calming foods and supplements. if you can stay away from drugs that's the best way to go.
223152 tn?1346981971 Who knows, with technology advancing like it is, you would think that eventually a drug will become available that will dramatically slow the progression of hep C, making it possible to live with the disease and without the awful side effects of treatment. FOR MANY OF US, THAT MIGHT BE A VERY SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME!
1166311 tn?1263067435 Because they are like speed. and hard to come off of.And if they try they get sick .And you can have the side effects for the rest of your life.And have to take another medicine to take care of a new problem that you got because of taken the medicine you took in the first place. My Son took medicine for ADD and ADHD and it change him ,not for the better.
Avatar n tn Has anyone gone off topomax cold turkey? And if so what, if any side effects did you have. I've been on it for 3 weeks and want to stop it today but my nurse said to go off the way I went on . Any advice out there?
Avatar m tn I have felt a lot better but still get fatigued in the afternoon and after shot effects are minimal and have finally started gaining weight again. Just hope the back side of the storm is less windy. Haven’t taken a vacation in two years and am taking advantage of the eye of the storm. Good luck on your 72 week roll.
Avatar n tn I checked a few sites and these are all the side effects listed. I find it hard to believe that any drug would be approved that causes brain damage, such as memory loss. Perhaps call the mfgr. or the FDA for more info.
Avatar n tn From February, he wasn't able to attend school. Some days he went for 2-3 hours but mostly felt tired and stomach and head hurt him and just plain not well. End of June retook blood work-still wasn't feeling much better- in fact started to complain of not being able to concentrate. Like his brain was fuzzy! His result came back with CMV IgM AB, EIA 1.50-still high and his IgG 0.09. Can someone help me out there. The doctor said it could take 1-2 years until he feels better.
Avatar n tn Can you guys share with me any side effects of Diltiazem? And can anyone offer insight to what these out of the blue sudden thumps are? Thank you for all the info you share of your own stories. In the very least, Im not alone.
214277 tn?1211820633 Remember if you have a normal heart and you have been checked out - they are benign - don't think about them and they will go away. I strongly urge that you try Omega 3. This has even helped me with my atrial fibrillation and virtually ridded me of PVCs - I take 3 grams per day.
Avatar n tn My new dr added omega 3, magnesium and vitamin c to my meds, and I have to say, something is finally working. If I had it to do all over again I would have found a different dr sooner. I was told all the same things that everyone else was told about their breathing and had all the same tests. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn I am insulin resistant and have started taking 500 mg Metformin about 5-10 minutes before meals.This affects my appetite tremendously and makes me feel full. I have lost 12 pounds in about 3 weeks. I drive a truck at night and am very inactive.As I got very bored driving,my companion was "food".You know where that Learn to take your Metformin with food and I think you will see some weight loss.I experienced some stomach distress at first, but decided to stick it out.
5142668 tn?1364234345 Omega 3 and vitamin B complex.
Avatar n tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
Avatar n tn I would not recommend this medication - it's not a miracle pill, it eventually stops working anyways - and the side effects and withdrawal make you worse for wear by the time you realize you need to stop taking it. I wonder how many doctors out there take this stuff - they are writing scripts for it like it's candy.
Avatar m tn And since it has been FDA approved for twenty years and used in the field extensively in megadose amounts, its safety has been well established by the most stringent FDA standards. No side effects, and costs only $30 per month without health insurance - the only possible downside is that it may not cure your incurable disease. People are using it for cancer, Crohn's, MS, fibromyalgia, autism, and all other autoimmune diseases.
