fish oil interactions
Does anyone know if it is ok to take fish oil with inhaled corticosteroids? I have COPD. I tried it and I think it helped my inflammation but I also seemed to get some increased side effects from the steroid.

thanks

It is not a good idea to inhale aerosolized fish oil, although supplemental oral supplements are fine.

Thanks for the information on the lack of interaction.

They now have flavored (in a variety of flavors) Cod liver oil available, which is quite palatable.

Cod liver oil isn't the best fish oil for inflammation or for omega 3 oils.  It comes in gel caps, which you don't taste at all.  Nordic Naturals is a very good brand for omega 3 rich fish oil.
