- Taking omega-3 during cyclosporine (Sandimmune) therapy may reduce toxic side effects, such as high blood pressure and kidney damage, associated with this medication in transplant patients.
- The addition of omega-3 fatty acids (specifically EPA) to the drug therapy etretinate (Tegison) and topical corticosteroids may improve symptoms of psoriasis.
- Increasing the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet (and reducing the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio) may allow cholesterol lowering medications (known as statins) to work more effectively.
Treatment with omega-3 fatty acids reduced the risk of ulcersfrom nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – including ibuprofen and naproxen – in animal studies.
