He's just making money off of you. And he's also recommending an odd dose of Omega 3s to deal with triglycerides. You need at least 1800mg/daily, up to 3 grams daily, depending on how high they are.

A 600mg or 720mg/daily dose won't do much of anything for you.

If your doctor truly believes over the counter fish oil won't help, he should prescribe Lovaza, which is a prescription omega 3 used for lowering triglyceride levels. If your co-pay isn't so bad, I'd suggest this option. One capsule of Lovaza has about 850mg+ of omega 3. Normal dosage is 3-4 capsules daily.

And there are decent over the counter brands too, like Carlson or Nordic Naturals. If you take a lower concentrate fish oil, you just need to take more of it.
