    Do any of you have this problem when supplementing fish oil?

    I finally talked my wife into taking these. The last two nights she has taken them her sleep has sucked. Nothing else has changed except for the addition of the fish oil pills, which are taken at right before bed.

    This got me thinking. I never even thought of this until that happened to her. The same thing happens to me when I take them before bed. Usually I have 3am and 3pm. Sometimes I miss the pm dosing for whatever reason and on those nights I sleep fine. But any day I take them before bed, I toss and turn all night.

    Any of you guys experience this?

    I've been meaning to by that, but whenever I'm at the store I can't find it. Eventually I get the right place and pick it up though.

    I'm going to try it and have her do the same.

    I tried google and the only thing I could find is they can help with sleep, not do the opposite.

    :dunno:

    i was under the assumption fish oil pills are supposed to be taken with a meal. So maybe have her take them with breakfast lunch or dinner

    I don't see how fish oil could possibly cause sleeping problems.

    Stick the caps in your nose, then talk to me about them not possibly causing sleeping problems.

    Neither did I.

    But my wife slept fine, never a problem. I get her to start taking fish oil pills and both days she took them she didn't sleep well. No other changes. :dunno:

    I'm going to have her stop taking them at night and see what happens.

    Since i started taking fish oil i have been having some pretty crazy/vivid dreams... and have searched elsewhere and heard of people having the same type of dreams, but not necessarily causing problems

    sometimes it gives me some weird indigestion usually with 2400-3600 mg, makes me feel kinda shitty some times. I also take it with a multi + magnesium 500 + 1/3 of a zinc 50 mg tablet and 50-100mg of 5-HTP
