Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?
What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines.

Can calcium that comes from plant sources have any adverse reactions like clogging arteries? I wanna take RAW CALCIUM from garden of life product
No: it is a wise idea for most women to supplement calcium and vitamin D. Exercise is very important for bone preservation also.

Calcium supplements do not clog your arteries. Good luck. ...Read more

I hope you're having your liver blood enzyme levels monitored on that combination. Adding Magnesium to all of this is not my concern as I don't see any issue in that as long as your doses of all these other medications are not excessive. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
