Heart Disease Home > Flaxseed Oil Overdose
A flaxseed oil overdose could increase the risk of bleeding, including dangerous internal bleeding. Be sure to watch for any signs of bleeding, such as easy bruising or bright-red blood in the stool, if you have taken a large dose of flaxseed oil. Overdose treatment (if necessary) may involve supportive care, which consists of treating symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
- Easy bruising or cuts that do not stop bleeding
- Black, tarry stools; bright-red blood in the stool; or vomiting of blood (signs of gastrointestinal bleeding)
- Signs of a hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in the brain), such as vision or speech changes, weakness or numbness in an arm or leg, or a severe headache.
