I thought I would pass this on as it seems to have helped. About a week and a half ago, I started taking Omega 3 fatty acid tablets in the hope that it would counteract my weight gain. I haven't changed any of my other habits, but I appear to have lost 5 pounds so far. There doesn't appear to be any negative side effects either. The only thing I would recommend, however, is taking the omega 3 at a different time than your medication. If taken at the same time, the omega 3 can block the absorption of other medications. I take my paxil in the morning and the omega 3 at night.
