I am concerned about fish oil and what I hear from friends. My doctor as suggested that I take Omega-3-Acid Ethyl Esters Capsules USP i gram, (Prescription) with dosage of 2 each morning and 2 each evening for high Cholestarol. I take Welchol 625 mg with the same dosage. I take a baby aspirin at night. One friend says that their doctor says fish oil and aspirin thins the blood too much. Another friend says that their doctor says the he doesn t need fish oil and welchol. What is your advice for me taking these drugs?
