Just bought children's fish oil by mistake!

Post by thisiswater » Wed Feb 03, 2016 11:08 am

Ugh -- I bought Carlson's Norwegian fish oil and thought I was buying the smallest size so that I could try it. Turns out its children's! 800 mg. Do I just double the dose, since their adult fish oil is 1600 mg? Will I get enough nutrient from fish oil alone? Bought it because it was the only brand refrigerated at Whole Foods. I'd prefer capsules so welcome all recommendations for brands/dosing and confirmation that these really do have to be refrigerated at store and home. Many thanks!

Thanks. What you want to look at is the combined amount of EPA and DHA. In this case, it's 650 mg/0.5 tsp. I would take at least 1 tsp or 1.5 tsp based on the EPA+DHA.
