Important Instructions on Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids can potentially interact with several medications (see Omega-3 Drug Interactions).
It is not known exactly what to expect from an overdose of omega-3 fatty acids, or even if an overdose is possible, but it is reasonable to assume that taking too much may cause the usual side effects, but they may be more severe. Theoretically, an overdose could cause severe problems, such as internal bleeding.

Refer to the label of your individual supplement for information on how to best store it. Keep omega-3 fatty acid supplements out of the reach of children. If you have a problem with a fishy aftertaste (or what is often called a "fish burp") from the fish oil supplement, try keeping it in the freezer.
