Am I taking too much fish oil?


Answer by  begold (17)

If you are starting to look like a fish then yes. The sudden appearance of scales and/or gills might be a dead giveaway. Also being thirsty all the time could be a consideration. It could be possible that you are a mermaid, but that is a whole different problem.

I believe the recommended dosage is 2 1 gram capsules a day. I'm not sure fish oil has a toxicity level. I would make an appointment to discuss this with my doctor or pharmacist, but in the meantime you could utilize a website such as web MD and find out if they have information about fish oil.
