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. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

YOU CAN;'T: You need to be weaned from your opiate slowly. If you quit cold turkey you can go through opiate withdrawl which can be quite unpleasant. Sometimes some medications can be used to help with opiate cravings. In any case, your body needs to slowly get used to not having the opiate in your system, the same way it would if you were trying to no longer use nicotine or caffeine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
