Fish oil with thyroid medication and factor 5 disorder?

Hello,

This is my first time posting so I appreciate any feedback that is possible.

I originally wanted to speak with my doctor about this but he insisted I had to make an appointment in order speak about this - I can not take a day off from work just to ask if I can take a vitamin safely, which is why I am here..

Currently, I take 25MCG tab of Levothyroxin due to having a hyopthryoid.. also, I have diagnosed with Factor 5 blood disorder but was told only to take a baby aspirin and am not taking things like warfarin or cumadin.

I have been dieting that last few weeks and was interested in taking a natural vitamin to help lose weight ( no gimicks ) and noticed the benefits of fish oil ( omega - 3 ). I also noticed that they suggested to find out if it is safe if your taking blood thinners. My question is wether or not it would be safe to taking http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000SE5SY6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1WPZCVZZBOGCN


which is 750 mg of omega -3 fatty acids, twice a day.

Please let me know if any other information is needed and thank you in advance.
