What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose, but it is reasonable to assume that taking too much of it may cause the usual side effects of fish oil, but perhaps more severely. Theoretically, an overdose may cause severe problems, such as internal bleeding or poisoning from toxins in the oil.

Storage Methods for Fish Oil

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