Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.I understand your concern.
Fish oil is a supplement.It has many benfits for the health.
It does not go well with :
-Fat-blockers
-Omega-6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid and arachidonic acid]
- blood-thinning medications, asprin, warfarin or clopidogrel
If you are taking one of this medication I suggest you to stop the fish oil.
Hope my answer was helpful.If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.
Regards,
