Has anyone tried taking high doses of omega-3 to prevent migraine? How much did you take, for how long, and did it help?

I just started last week. I am taking Omega 3, multi-vitamin, coenzyme Q10, Viatmin E and mega vitamin c (powder). Obviously it takes a month or so to notice any difference, but hopefully it will help! How long have you been on it?

I started taking high dose omega-3 a week ago. I take 3 1000mg-capsules in the morning and 3 in the evening. I think it’s worth a try. I’ll stick with it for a month or two and see if I notice any difference in symptoms.


Wow & I was worried about taking 1000 a day. Ok, now I will have to look into taking more. Wouldnt it be great if there was one set of guidelines concerning vitamins? (one site says one thing, one says another) :roll:

“Tolerable Upper Limits” for certain supplements, not limited to vitamins, are among the safety issues discussed at

Hi Anette,

There’s good evidence that fish oils are very good for the brain. They become incorporated into the tissue and are associated with a lower prevalence of depression for example. Certainly worth a go. Just be aware of the gel caps they can come in. One brand gave me some nasty headaches I think because of the gelatin in them.


Thanks David :smiley:

I haven’t noticed much difference in symptoms while taking high doses of omega-3, so I have started to cut back. It was worth a try, though -no adverse effects.
