What are the side effects of Mega-3 capsules?
Q: What is the best source for Omega 3 fatty acid? Can you give me some information about Dr. Reddys Mega-3 capsules? I would like to know their side effects and contents.
A:Mega-3 is the brand name; the name of the ingredient is omega-3 triglycerides. It is sourced from fish lipid oil and contains eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids. It reduces blood fats, particularly triglycerides. Its side effects include nausea, eructation, bleeding disorders and vitamin E deficiency, when used over prolonged periods. It should be used with caution in asthmatics.
