[QUOTE=Michael8466;3366113]I've been taking Omega 3 for the past 3 months. Should I stop? I also don't know why he doesn't want me take niacin. I asked him and he said not to take it. So now I'll be on the following drugs for my back, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure-Norco, Ibuprofin, Flexeril, Skelaxin, Lunesta, Nifedical, Lorvastatin. I also have a sleep study next month for which I know I have sleep apnea. Life goes on, as Tony Soprano says "Wada ya gona do":)[/QUOTE]

How much fish oil are you using? I wouldn't stop but you may need to take more. With the high TGs I would shoot for about 6 grams per day. 2 gm in morning 2 in afternoon and 2 more in the evening.

Ask your Dr. why he's opposed to using the Niacin. Maybe he has a good reason. Possibly an interaction with some of your other meds? Or possibly he's brainwashed into believing that it's a supplement and not helpfull. I would press him on this just to see where he's comming from. But then again I might just be an arse.

Get that sleep problem taken care of. They're finding out all kinds of nasty things can be related to sleep apnea.

Good luck and Happy New Year.
