Children with ADHD and bipolar: Omega 3 fish oil

Message length 300 characters recommended

I'm not a fan of trying to treat children with a serious mental illness with just fish oil. While it may help them it is not likely to cure the very serious effects of bipolar disorder on its own. Usually this is treated with a mood stabilizer in conjunction with an antidepressant and/or anti anxiety medication. Without proper treatment the child is at risk for bouts of anger, violence, severe depression, suicidal ideation and self harm.
