Success seen with omega-3 fatty acids?


Question from Teri Melton: Do any of your patients have success with omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil or flaxseed oil? 
Answers - Mindy Goldman, M.D. I have found that some patients find this beneficial, particularly the flax, and I think this is probably a function of the phytoestrogen content. I have not seen as much success with the omega-3 fatty acids.
