Certain people may present a temporary acceleration in intestinal transit. In rare cases, stools are soft or even liquid during the first week of administration. In this case, it is simply necessary to decrease the dose for one or two weeks, and then to try the higher dose again to see whether it is now well tolerated.
Omega-3 fatty acids may cause a reduction in platelet aggregation. Ask your doctor for advice if you suffer blood coagulation disorders or if you are taking anticoagulant treatment as the effects of the products may be potentiated. However, studies have not shown an increase in bleeding time with omega-3 doses of up to 3g per day (that is 7 capsules of My OM3 Smile Treatment ).
If you must undergo a surgical operation, tell your doctor that you are taking this dietary supplement.
When shouldn't you take My OM3 Smile Treatment ?
My OM3 Smile Treatment is not recommended in persons presenting allergies to fish and shellfish.
Patients with pancreatic disorders (congenital malformations of the pancreas, chronic or acute pancreatitis) should avoid the consumption of fats in general. In these cases, administration of My OM3 Smile Treatment like all other food supplements containing essential fatty acids, is not recommended.
In the absence of any conclusive scientific data, use by pregnant women, during breast-feeding or in children is not recommended: Ask your doctor or pharmacist for their advice.
The only possible drug interaction of omega-3 is with anticoagulants and possibly aspirin as they may theoretically increase the effects of these agents on the fluidity of blood. You should therefore inform your doctor that you intend to take omega-3 supplements and ask him to adjust the anticoagulant treatment where necessary (generally by reducing the dose of the drug, on the basis of the results of tests of clotting or bleeding times which are generally unchanged).
On the other hand, omega-3 are perfectly compatible with psychiatric drugs such as antidepressants (Prozac, Zoloft, Deroxat, Seropram, etc), lithium, or neuroleptics (Zyprexa, Haldol and others).
