Thanks for so kindly keeping us up to speed. I've had the misfortune (as have some others on the forum) to have tried the mood stabilizers rather thoroughly. That's why we're down to this fishy business. After having swallowed 720 mgs. of nimodipine a day for several months, fifteen capsules of fish oil should be a cinch - except for that little eructation problem. The limited studies on Omega 3s are definitely far from conclusive, but are very encouraging for those of us who have been desperately looking for help. Actually, I'm more concerned about mercury poisoning than the fishiness, so am careful about my source of oil. Hopefully a concentrated preparation of Omega3s will be generally available soon (anyone looking for a good business opportunity?!!). Aricept (donzepil) and ECT are not exactly first line treatments either. I'm also doing my trial under top-notch medical supervision. My consultant seemed hopeful than the donzepil might help with the GI side effects.

Thanks for your dedicated caring and solid help to me and so many on this list.

Chris A.
