Fish oil with thyroid medication and factor 5 disorder?
rowej83 posted:

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

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.
